As advocates for Kentucky's wildlife, plants and nature preserves we are an independent non-profit organization who partners with the Kentucky Nature Preserves Commission.

Our mission:

The Friends of Kentucky Nature Preserves are dedicated to the protection and promotion of our state’s biodiversity and natural areas through support of land management, scientific studies and environmental education.

We want to ensure that our efforts have a maximum impact on conservation by closely working with scientists, educators and land managers. We realize how critical it is that our limited resources are used effectively to improve the chances for long-term survival of Kentucky’s natural heritage.
