Program-Specific Giving
Charitable gifts dedicated to a specific purpose

In addition to annual membership contributions, Tall Timbers allows our donors to make program specific gifts that allow you the opportunity to give to a specific research or conservation program that has particular interest to you and your family. We hope that you will consider making a designated gift to one of the following operating funds of Tall Timbers. No gift is too small and contributions earmarked for specific departments will be used solely for that purpose.

Support Research at Tall Timbers

Game Bird Program

Tall Timbers Quail Research (Pamela H. Firman Quail Management Research Fund): Tall Timbers has an award-winning quail management research program that produces proven management methods. Contributions to the Pamela H. Firman Quail Management Research Fund support our long-term research, which has studied over 15,000 radio-tagged quail and helped increase quail numbers on hundreds of thousands of acres. Your gift will be used exclusively for the Game Bird Program to continue its long-term work at Tall Timbers.

Albany Quail Project: The Albany Quail Project has conducted long-term research on private lands in the Albany, Georgia region since 1992. Under the direction of Clay Sisson, the Albany Quail Project seeks to shed new light on how we might manage for better quail habitat in the Albany region of southwest Georgia. All contributions made to the project will remain in the Albany area and will be dedicated specifically to our work there.

South Carolina Quail Project: The South Carolina Quail Project seeks to replicate the work and scale of management that currently exists in other high density wild bobwhite populations, in particular the contiguous Red Hills Region of private quail plantations in South Georgia and north Florida. Our research and habitat restoration work in the low country region of South Carolina is helping landowners and managers re-establish sustainable and huntable populations of wild bobwhites in the region.

Fire Ecology Program

The goal of the Fire Ecology Program is to provide the public with applicable, science-based information on prescribed fire and vegetation dynamics in the southern pine ecosystem. Research is focused on the Red Hills Region, roughly located between Tallahassee, Florida and Thomasville, Georgia and between the Ochlocknee and Aucilla River drainages. Contributions made directly to the Fire Ecology program at Tall Timbers will be used to help supplement the program with internships, supplies and capital needs.

Stoddard Bird Lab

The Stoddard Bird Lab provides data-driven solutions for the problems facing some of our most threatened songbirds and woodpeckers. Your support continues a 50-year tradition of award winning research focused on the bird mortality associated with communication towers, the unique characteristics of rare old-growth pine forests, the conservation of endangered species on private lands, and the overarching benefits of prescribed fire for declining bird populations.

Support Conservation Efforts at Tall Timbers

Tall Timbers Land Conservancy

The Tall Timbers Land Conservancy is considered one of the premier land trusts in the nation. We conserve working forests, farms, and recreational hunting lands in the Red Hills region of southwest Georgia and north Florida and other areas that further Tall Timbers’ broader mission. Since its inception in 1990, over 130,000 acres have been conserved by conservation easements held by Tall Timbers. These easements protect in perpetuity land that buffers our beautiful rivers and lakes, park-like pine forests, and scenic vistas that distinguish our rural countryside. The public benefits from these easements as they serve to protect the region’s water quality, clean air, wildlife and distinctive canopy roads.

Advocacy and Planning

For more than 20 years, Tall Timbers Land Conservancy has played an active role in land use planning, community planning and issue advocacy. We undertake these activities recognizing that we cannot conserve every acre of land in the Red Hills Region. Therefore, we are strong supporters of "smart growth" that is fiscally responsible, enhances local communities and their economies, and protects the natural, scenic, and cultural resources of distinctive rural lands such as the Red Hills.

Greater Red Hills Awareness Initiative

The Greater Red Hills Awareness Initiative, a collaborative regional project with partners in Florida and Georgia, seeks to broaden public awareness about the Red Hills and its natural, historical, recreational, and cultural amenities. This public awareness of the uniqueness of the Region augments a greater sense of place for its resident and increases the commitment to conserve it. The Initiative partners work collaboratively on Red Hills outreach and education activities such as public workshops, media campaigns, festivals, ecological and historical tours, and more.

Support Dixie Plantation

This 9,100 acre property provides Tall Timbers with a unique opportunity for research on a working hunting plantation. Our objectives at Dixie include: maintaining a high density bobwhite quail population for field trials, enhancing the ecological, cultural, and historic values, education in wildlife management, and research that contribute to the mission of Tall Timbers. We are committed to continuing the pointing dog field trial tradition at Dixie, which may be best known as the grounds for the Continental Field Trial, where it has been held annually since 1937. Dixie is also home to a historic Greek revival home designed by John Russell Pope, the foremost classical architect of the twentieth century. Donations will be used to support management of this historic property.
