The Thomas County Historical Society is proud to present a redesigned 2017 Spring Program series exploring the history, culture, ecology, and landscape of the Red Hills region.  The series is comprised of two lectures and a hands-on workshop all taking place in March. 

On March 21, Shane Wellendorf, Conservation Coordinator at Tall Timbers Research Station and Land Conservancy shares “Conserving the Magnificent Giants of the Red Hills,” a discussion about the history of private land conservation in the Red Hills region and how those efforts have protected local forests and the preservation of that ecological legacy for the future. The lecture begins at 6pm, is free to the public and takes place at the Museum of History, 725 N. Dawson Street, Thomasville, Georgia.  

Tall Timbers, nationally known for its prescribed fire and wildlife ecology research, has an accredited Land Conservancy that holds 130,593 acres of donated conservation easements and owns more than 12,000 acres of land in South Georgia and north Florida. Shane has worked for 11 years at Tall Timbers as a wildlife research biologist. In 2011, he transferred to the Land Conservancy and began working on conservation transactions and easement stewardship.
