Kentucky’s Biodiversity Education Project

kcc_bkday2015-1x300This project consists of providing information to the public and build support for Kentucky’s rare and threatened plants and animals, as well as celebrating Kentucky’s unique biodiversity.

Our work consists of public education events, research and whitepapers designed to promote Kentucky’s unique range of plants, animals and biota and support efforts to conserve what is native and threatened.

KCF’s agents were involved in review and input for the Kentucky Department of Agriculture’s recent Pollinator Protection Plan.

KCF agents were also involved in the recent designation of the Kentucky Arrow Darter, a threatened fish found only in Southeast Kentucky streams.
