Kentucky Heartwood seeks to protect and restore the integrity, stability, and beauty of Kentucky’s native forests and biotic communities through research, education, advocacy, and community engagement.
Kentucky Heartwood is a non-profit organization that has worked since 1992 to protect and restore the integrity, stability, and beauty of Kentucky’s native forest ecosystems and the species that depend on them. Kentucky Heartwood is celebrating its 25th year this year! We put special focus on the Daniel Boone National Forest in southeastern Kentucky and Land Between the Lakes in western Kentucky. These amazing public lands provide habitat for dozens of rare and threatened species, help clean our air and water, stabilize the climate, and are the backbone of outdoor recreation in Kentucky. The effort to protect our native forests and declining species is increasingly important in this era of climate change, habitat loss, budget cuts, and rollbacks of environmental protections.
