Sand Savannas – some interesting information

Sand savannas, unique and fascinating ecosystems of sand soil, exist in the northern portion of NICHES service area. NICHES Land Trust promotes and supports sand savanna conservation by meeting with land owners interested in protecting and conserving sand savannas on their properties in Jasper or Newton County, educating the public about sand savannas, and of course stewarding the sand savannas at Fisher Oak Savanna Nature Preserve in Jasper County, and Holley Savanna in Newton County.

You can experience the sand savanna ecosystem by visiting either property. You can learn about Fisher Oak Savanna by watching our informative and engaging documentary.   If you own land with a sand savanna and want to learn more about conservation strategies or opportunities, contact niches@nicheslandtrust.org
