Annual Report 2020

Wildlands News: This year marks KNLT’s 25th anniversary and a notable benchmark – together we have protected more than 50,000 acres of wildlands! Through the power of partnership, we have safeguarded wild places, from the mountains of Central Appalachia to the sloughs of the Mississippi River.

The following are a few highlights from 2020:

– KNLT protected an additional 1,368 acres on Pine Mountain near Cumberland, Kentucky, establishing the Warbler Ridge Preserve. The preserve combines this newly acquired tract with land protected in 2017, creating our largest preserve totaling 2,456 acres. Read More>>>
