An upcoming short film series, Roaming the Red Hills, produced by WFSU-TV in Tallahassee, features several popular Leon County recreational locations including the lower Ochlockonee River, Lake Iamonia, and the Apalachicola National Forest. The short films explore the culturally rich, biodiverse region of the Red Hills region stretching southward from Thomasville to Tallahassee and eastward to Monticello.
In the first episode airing on Thursday, March 31, viewers will meet Florida State students searching for endangered birds, such as the Red-cockaded woodpeckers in a long-leaf forest, learn about one family’s conservation land and their efforts to reestablish quail, and comb the pine lands with area biologists for the fire-dependent gopher-tortoise. The three-week series runs on WFSU’s Local Routes at 7:30 PM from March 31-April 14.
Local Routes is a half-hour television program that takes viewers on a weekly journey to explore authentic northwest Florida and south Georgia. Tall Timbers Research Station & Land Conservancy partnered with WFSU-TV and provided funding for the regional education project. Georgia Ackerman, of Tall Timbers said, “We are super excited to see the series air because viewers will get to visually explore the Red Hills region and learn more about this magical place that we are so fortunate to live in.”
