Secrets of the Longleaf Pine, a documentary produced by Red Sky Productions (Atlanta, Georgie), focuses on Longleaf Pine forests that once dominated the coastal plain in the southeastern United States. These “fragmented oases of biodiversity” are home to many unique animals, including Gopher Tortoises, Eastern Indigo Snakes, and Red-Cockaded Woodpeckers. After showing the film, Dr. Tschinkel, who appears in the documentary, will answer questions and discuss his work on investigating ant colony dynamics. Chris Matechik will then give a brief overview of the current longleaf pine restoration efforts on the FSUCML’s North 70 Tract.
