CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER!
BIODIVERSITY DAY 2015

Because of the winter storms, we unfortunately had to cancel our Biodiversity Day 2015. We appreciate all of our members and supporters who worked on the planning of this event and we hope you will join us next year! Kentucky is rich with diverse life, with more different types of trees, flowers, and many other species than most locations on earth and we will continue to celebrate Kentucky’s wealth of living things.

 


The Kentucky Conservation Committee has been a
trusted voice of the public in Kentucky’s capital for over forty years, effectively lobbying for the protection, restoration and sustainable use of Kentucky’s natural resources.

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