Event Description

Longleaf pine forests once stretched across the South from Virginia to Florida to Texas. Today, less than five percent remains of the once 90-million acre system. Biologist Cheryl Millett reveals why this species-rich habitat declined and how the Conservancy’s investment in reviving these piney woods will payoff in wildlife, clean water, profitable timber, resilient woods and cultural heritage.

Register early for winter programs at the Hawley Education Center at Blowing Rocks Preserve, 574 South Beach Road, Jupiter Island. All programs are free and are held from 2-3 p.m. Seating is limited. To register, call (561) 744-6668 x101, or e-mail lfinch@tnc.org.
