This summer, Bluegrass Land Conservancy participated in three family-friendly programs, all promoting the importance of healthy waterways and the impact of our interactions with the environment.
“Kentucky has tens of thousands of miles of streams and rivers. That’s a lot of water. And a lot of responsibility. It all flows downstream, so let’s be good upstream neighbors. Learn about your local streams and watersheds—and do your part to lessen your impact on everyone’s water.”
– Dr. Amanda A. Gumbert, Water Quality Extension Specialist, University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food & Environment
BLC and Oldham County Fiscal Court’s Curry’s Fork Watershed Project partnered for our first creek clean-up on Curry’s Fork in Oldham County. Local volunteers pulled a truckload of trash, including: three mattress springs, tires, paint cans, car parts, a satellite dish, and an old mailbox out of South Curry’s Fork tributary in LaGrange on July 19th.
Special shout out to Kentucky Division of Water for letting Dale Booth come teach us about our Curry’s Fork creek critters.
