    • Wolf Creek Trout Lily Preserve, Cairo, Georgia

    Join Sierra Club of the Big Bend for a tour of Wolf Creek Trout Lily Preserve, a 140-acre conservation area in Grady County, Georgia.

    The Preserve was established in 2009 through the efforts of volunteers from the Magnolia Chapter (Tallahassee) of the Florida Native Plant Society (including some Georgians) and many generous donations. It is destined to remain forever undisturbed from human development, protecting the many acres and literally tens of millions of beautiful yellow and maroon dimpled trout lilies and thousands of maroon spotted trillium.

    This is the largest extent of these trout lilies known anywhere in the world, and certainly a jewel of Grady County! Each trout lily flower opens in late morning or early afternoon, follows the sun, and closes at dusk, so the tour will be in the afternoon.

    Registration is required for this hike:  https://act.sierraclub.org/events/details?formcampaignid=7013q000002C3cxAAC

    • Online webinar

    This webinar will explore ways to discover common ground with uncommon allies. Renowned climate scientist, Katharine Hayhoe, will show how to engage with just about anyone on climate issues. She’ll share stories of introducing climate science to people who, on the surface, seemed too disinterested to engage with the issues. Dr. Hayhoe will talk about how to make connections in unexpected places, and why it’s crucial to unite beyond politics, religion, and culture in addressing the climate crisis.

    This webinar has a minimum donation of $25 to access.   We in Sustainable Tallahassee prefer to publicize free webinars, but this one is an exception due to Dr. Hayhoe’s reputation as a climate scholar and to the importance of this topic.

    Drawing on data from Collier County, West Palm Beach and other communities in Florida and beyond, Joe Minicozzi, AICP, will focus on the economic impacts of development and sprawl in one of the fastest growing states in the nation. 

    A pioneer of an approach to planning and city design called Geoaccounting, Mr. Minicozzi demonstrate how cities can use local data and simple math to understand the impact of development on their community economic health.  His case studies illuminate how cities and regions can better forecast fiscally sustainable development patterns, in the process protecting sensitive natural lands and waters.  He is the founder and principal of Urban3, a real estate economics firm that maps the financial health of built environments to inspire communities of all sizes to think differently about development, land use, and public policy.

    This event has been approved for professional certification credits for Planners (AICP CM #9189011), Florida attorneys (CLE #1908621N), Florida Certified Environmental Health Professionals, and Certified Floodplain Managers (1 CEC). 1000 Friends has applied for credits for Florida DBPR landscape architects but cannot guarantee they will be approved.

    • Meet at a designated spot at Cascades Park in Tallahassee

    Join Jim Stevenson, Florida springs expert, on a fascinating tour of the Wakulla Spring Basin which examines the sources and traces the water journey to the world famous Wakulla Springs.

    Follow the amazing underground journey of precious “blue gold” southward from Tallahassee to the mother lode of Wakulla Springs

    See the actual sinkholes hidden away in the woods where exploration cave divers enter one of the longest and deepest underwater cave systems in the world. Learn how this incredible connection of caves conducts groundwater through the Floridan Aquifer from Leon County south to Wakulla Spring. Learn what you can do to help save our precious Wakulla Springs!

    There are seven stopping sites of interest en route to Wakulla Springs, including lakes, sinkholes and the wastewater treatment plant. We will observe land use activities that affect the quantity and quality of the water flowing to the spring and hear about steps taken during the past 20+ years to protect the precious Wakulla Springs.  Experience the scenic basin area of Wakulla Springs and observe protection strategies against the enjoyable backdrop of local vegetation and wildlife. Jim will share his remarkable knowledge of education, stormwater management, wastewater management, land acquisition, land use planning, research, monitoring, and best management practices.

    "Saving Wakulla Springs" Overland Tour is a car caravan/walking tour that leaves from Cascades Park at 8:00 a.m. and ends at the tower overlooking the spring at 12:00 noon. Each tour is limited to 10 vehicles and carpools are strongly encouraged. (Some of the visit sites have very limited parking).  The cost is $18 per person, $10 for students  (the majority of which will be donated to the Friends of Wakulla Springs State Park).

    This tour covers the entrance fee to Wakulla Springs State Park. Additional options include lunch in the Lodge and a boat tour to observe the wildlife and ecology of the river.

    A NOTE ABOUT THE TOUR LEADER: Jim Stevenson was the chief naturalist of Florida’s state parks for 20 years, the former coordinator of the Wakulla Springs Basin Working Group, and former chairman of the Florida Springs Task Force.

    This tour will be offered four times during the Spring of 2020, on these Saturdays: 

       January 25
       February 29

    • Meet at a designated spot at Cascades Park in Tallahassee

    Join Jim Stevenson, Florida springs expert, on a fascinating tour of the Wakulla Spring Basin which examines the sources and traces the water journey to the world famous Wakulla Springs.

    Follow the amazing underground journey of precious “blue gold” southward from Tallahassee to the mother lode of Wakulla Springs

    See the actual sinkholes hidden away in the woods where exploration cave divers enter one of the longest and deepest underwater cave systems in the world. Learn how this incredible connection of caves conducts groundwater through the Floridan Aquifer from Leon County south to Wakulla Spring. Learn what you can do to help save our precious Wakulla Springs!

    There are seven stopping sites of interest en route to Wakulla Springs, including lakes, sinkholes and the wastewater treatment plant. We will observe land use activities that affect the quantity and quality of the water flowing to the spring and hear about steps taken during the past 20+ years to protect the precious Wakulla Springs.  Experience the scenic basin area of Wakulla Springs and observe protection strategies against the enjoyable backdrop of local vegetation and wildlife. Jim will share his remarkable knowledge of education, stormwater management, wastewater management, land acquisition, land use planning, research, monitoring, and best management practices.

    "Saving Wakulla Springs" Overland Tour is a car caravan/walking tour that leaves from Cascades Park at 8:00 a.m. and ends at the tower overlooking the spring at 12:00 noon. Each tour is limited to 10 vehicles and carpools are strongly encouraged. (Some of the visit sites have very limited parking).  The cost is $18 per person, $10 for students  (the majority of which will be donated to the Friends of Wakulla Springs State Park).

    This tour covers the entrance fee to Wakulla Springs State Park. Additional options include lunch in the Lodge and a boat tour to observe the wildlife and ecology of the river.

    A NOTE ABOUT THE TOUR LEADER: Jim Stevenson was the chief naturalist of Florida’s state parks for 20 years, the former coordinator of the Wakulla Springs Basin Working Group, and former chairman of the Florida Springs Task Force.

    This tour will be offered four times during the Spring of 2020, on these Saturdays: 

       January 25
       February 29
       March 21
       April 25
       May 16
