    Join us for an exploration of the Longleaf Pine Ecosystem. This fire-maintained ecosystem dominated by Longleaf Pines, wiregrass, and a diversity of herbaceous species once covered 95 million acres. Due to habitat loss only 3 million acres remains. Ft Stewart is one of the best examples of this ecosystem in coastal Plain of Georgia. Ft. Stewart conservation staff have expertly used prescribed fire to restore and maintain this rare ecosystem. This community is home to rare wildlife such as the indigo snake, gopher tortoise, and the red cockaded woodpecker. During this field trip we will also get to see a prescribed fire in action.

    From the producers of “Chattahoochee Unplugged” comes a new documentary about the forgotten Longleaf Pine forest that once blanketed the coastal plain of the Southeastern United States. Once comprising ninety million sprawling acres, by the 20th century, human pressures had reduced the forest to just three million. Just a tiny fraction of precious old growth remains. These remarkable patches of old growth Longleaf forest display more biodiversity than any other ecosystem in the northern hemisphere, rivaled only by the Amazon. “Secrets of the Longleaf Pine” takes you on an unprecedented journey to examine some of the unique plants and animals that can only be found here. Check out the Movie Trailer here!

    6pm doors open; 6:30 Speaker & intro, 7-8pm movie
