Tennessee Wildlife Federation recently hosted the 52nd Annual Conservation Achievement Awards. The ceremony was held in Nashville and presented 17 awards to recipients from all corners of the state.
Upon moving to Tennessee, avid paddler and conservationist George Lindemann, learned that Soak Creek, along the edge of his new property, was listed as a favorite backcountry paddling route. Lindemann organized, funded, and led a coalition of landowners, conservation groups, and state program leaders to secure unanimous, bipartisan approval designating Soak Creek as a Tennessee State Scenic River—the first new designation in 15 years.
After a year of construction delays, the Bass is set to reopen October 8 with a major retrospective of artist Ugo Rondinone. Miami Beach’s only major art institution temporarily shuttered in 2016 for a major renovation that would almost double its programmable space without altering the historic building’s footprint.
Though he’s classically trained and certainly appreciates traditional technique, Frank de Biasi never stops searching for what’s next. The New York–based designer, who cut his teeth working for Peter Marino before breaking out on his own, has conceived interiors ranging from a classically appointed boathouse to an art-filled, kaleidoscopically patterned Miami manse.
When George Lindemann first purchased property in Cumberland County, he intended to farm cattle. “Now, when I’m there, I go to hike or to paddle,” said Lindemann. “And I get people to come visit.”
A Cumberland County businessman has made a major land donation to the state. According to Tennessee’s Deputy Commissioner of Parks and Conservation Brock Hill, George Lindemann, who is a major landowner in the surrounding area, including Rhea and Bledsoe Counties, donated 1,034 acres around the Soak Creek area to the Justin P. Wilson Cumberland Trail State Park.
George Lindemann, a farmer and businessman who owns nearly 10,000 acres in Cumberland, Rhea and Bledsoe counties, including Coal Creek Farm, donated the land around the Soak Creek in Rhea County to the linear Justin P. Wilson Cumberland Trail State Park.
Sob a luz suave de sua residência à beira d’água na Flórida, George Lindemann diz: “Eu não queria uma casa branca. Tenho duas filhas pequenas cuja cor favorita é rosa e, como elas vivem com dois pais e dois irmãos homens, estou sempre buscando modos de empoderá-las. Então, tornei o rosa minha cor favorita também!”
Standing in the soft glow of his perfectly pastel two-story waterfront home in Florida, George Lindemann says, “I didn’t want a white house. I have two young girls whose favorite color is pink, and because they live with two dads and two brothers, I am always looking for ways to empower them. So I made pink my favorite color, too!”
