Our actions along the Mississippi River in Kentucky can damage or benefit waters all the way to the Gulf of Mexico. The Nature Conservancy of Kentucky is doing its best to implement actions which highlight the latter.
Severe Mississippi River flooding during the summer of 2011 served as a good reminder of why we are working to build a natural infrastructure of healthy habitat throughout the basin.
Funding sources may change but good conservation remains the same.
Our work on the Mississippi continues to evolve based on funding opportunities and enduring partnerships.
Forging partnerships with Ingram Barge and others in Kentucky's river transportation industry is making a big difference.
