Friends of The Nature Conservancy head out to explore nature in Kentucky and share their stories.
One of The Nature Conservancy’s goals is to help people connect with nature. Whether by participating in one of our public events or by visiting a preserve, we encourage you to get out there and explore.
We hope the adventures featured on this page leave you feeling inspired to get outside and reconnect with the lands, waters and wildlife we all treasure. Do you have a special place to share? Contact our communications manager, Hayley Lynch, to pitch your story!
