Land and Water Conservation & Stewardship
The Kentucky Conservation Committee has a rich history in land and water conservation. We were key in addressing Kentucky’s Scenic Easement legislation, the formation of the Purchase of Agricultural Easements (PACE) Program and strengthened Kentucky’s Wild River act among many of our accomplishments. we have been a watchdog for Kentucky’s land and water protection for over forty years.
We helped to develop the State Task Force for Land Stewardship and Conservation which led to the Conserve Kentucky initiative that continues to this day. If you are interested in learning more about our land and waters work, please email us.
