2022 Annual Meeting
The 2022 program calendar kicks off January 16 at 3pm with the Annual Membership Meeting, a gathering of our members, neighbors, and the community for a program that includes a brief business meeting and a special guest speaker.
During “The Central Role of Prescribed Fire in the History of the Red Hills Region,” Dr. Kevin Robertson, a Fire Science Researcher at Tall Timbers, will share his research into the history of our local fire ecology.
Kevin Robertson received his BS in Botany from Louisiana State University and his PhD in Plant Biology at the University of Illinois. He is the Fire Ecology Research Scientist at Tall Timbers Research Station and Land Conservancy, where he studies ecosystem and plant community ecology of southeastern U.S., fire regime effects on plant communities and soils, remote sensing of fire effects, and prescribed fire effects on air quality. He mentors graduate students through university adjunct faculty appointments and provides education and outreach promoting the use of prescribed fire for conservation of natural resources.
This program will be held at the History Center and is presented free of charge and is open to all. Parking is available on Dawson Street. For those unable to join us in person, we will live stream the program via Zoom webinar. To register for the livestream, please visit thomasvillehistory.org and visit our events page.
