Red Hills of Georgia

Straddling the Florida line near Thomasville, Georgia's red hills region is one of our state's hidden ecological treasures. First, we explore the diversity of flora and fauna found in the Torrean Ravines with renowned naturalist Bruce Means. We also explore the longleaf pine forest and examine a few species, like the endangered red-cockaded woodpecker, which make up the rich biological tapestry of this disappearing ecosystem. We also explore some recreational opportunities at River Creek Wildlife Management Area and visit Reed Bingham State Park's gopher tortoise program.
