The Sierra Club’s
speaker this month is Tallahassee Democrat senior writer, columnist and North
Florida native Mark Hinson. His talk will include readings of his humorous
columns satirizing everything from Walt Disney's environmental destruction of
Orlando, fracking foolishness and the war on black bears.
On a more personal
note, Hinson will sing the praises of the Hinson Conservation & Recreation
Area along the Chipola River in Marianna. The park - which features hiking
trails, a canoe-kayak launch, bluffs, caves, wild birds, endangered gopher
tortoises and more - was once part of the Hinson family farm. The park was his
late father's idea and legacy. It's also where Hinson grew up and got plenty of
material for his columns and stories.
