LOOKINGAHEAD

Assist Kentucky’s Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources and Division of Forestry with planting trees and shrubs to add to the landscape’s diversity and wildlife travel corridors. Utilize additional controlled burns to restore oak flatwood forests. Employ other restoration techniques to improve Indiana bat habitat.

 

  • Restored oak flatwoods forest, an uncommon but beautiful habitat, on forty acres using mechanical equipment and controlled burns to thin out understory and mid-story vegetation.
  •  
  • Established a diverse planting of native grasses and forbs (wildflowers) on several hundred acres to provide habitat for grassland birds, mammals and other wildlife.
  •  
  • Constructed moist soil units, wetlands equipped to accommodate floodwaters to coincide with shorebird and waterfowl migrations.
