Roaming the Red Hills Complete Video by WFSU-TV
May 6th, 2016 by Red Hills
Over the course of ten adventures, we explore the Red Hills of south Georgia and north Florida. It’s a region shaped by a rich ecology, starting with a large, privately owned longleaf forest, maintained through fire for the purpose of quail hunting, but beneficial to many species. From there we head down to the Red Hills’ rivers and lakes, and the wildlife within them. We also explore our rural heritage, where local agriculture still thrives.
Here we have collected all of our Roaming the Red Hills EcoAdventure series for a special episode of Local Routes. While we had to cut some footage for the air version to fit its time slot, we have no such constraint here. We ‘d like to thank Tall Timbers Research Station & Land Conservancy for providing funding for this video series, as well as to the local musicians who lent their music to the videos: Tracy Horenbein (who composed music specifically for the series), Belle and the Band, and Gary Asbell. Our narrator was Jim McMurtry. Roaming the Red Hills was produced and written by WFSU Ecology Blog producer Rob Diaz de Villegas.
