KCC lobbies the legislature, year-round. Our vision is for Kentucky to be a
responsible steward of the Commonwealth’s land, air, water, and biota, and for
Kentuckians to understand that the health of their families, communities and
economy depends on the conservation of these resources.

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE - 2014 LEGISLATIVE SESSION POSITIONS

BIODIVERSITY

One of KCC’s main goals is to enhance and protect the Commonwealth’s rich biodiversity.  To that end, KCC is pleased to make available to the public an important policy paper on biodiversity entitled, “The Importance of Roadside Vegetation and the Need for a Vegetation Management Plan in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.” This paper is authored by Dr. Tara Trammell of the University of Louisville and Dr. Tamara Sluss of Kentucky State University. The paper highlights the need for an Integrated Plan to remove exotic species, promote the use of native species and maintain healthy plant communities  which are vital for the state. We invite your careful attention to this important paper and and your participation in a discussion of these important issues.

BIODIVERSITY DAY

KCC will again host Biodiversity in Kentucky on February 27, 2014 in rooms 111 and 113 of the Capitol Annex.  Please join us and contact your legislator to show your support for biodiversity and the diverse habitat species require.

Kentucky is rich with diverse life, with more different types of trees, flowers, and many other species than most locations on earth.  These species act interdependently to give Kentuckians the high quality of productivity and natural experience on which we rely, which we expect, and which we market in tourism and economic development.

The governor has declared a day to celebrate Biodiversity in Kentucky Day for the past three years.  In celebration, legislators are invited to talk with people who have expertise in the nature and value of Kentucky’s natural riches.  Young Kentuckians who have excelled in the Jim Claypool Art and Conservation Writing competition will receive their awards, and hope they will have the opportunity to meet their legislators for a photo opportunity.

The theme for this year’s competition and celebration is Mission: H2O.  A dozen organizations and agencies will be on hand from 9:30 through early afternoon to share their expertise and activities, including Kentucky Waterways Alliance, State Nature Preserves Commission, Fish & Wildlife, State Parks, Environmental Education Council and others.

Event sponsors are the Kentucky Conservation Committee, Division of Conservation, Farm Bureau, State Nature Preserves Commission, Division of Water, Division of Forestry, and the Heritage Land Conservation Fund.

Here is an excellent summary by Dr. Vicki Holmberg on the importance of biodiversity
