"On the positive side…lands are being purchased by private groups such as the Kentucky Natural Lands Trust, and there are signs of hope on the horizon… In the end, it depends on all of us to support conservation activities to ensure a healthy environment for generations of future Kentuckians."
~Thomas G. Barnes
