reforest 2014

Thanks for making
the 2014 Reforest event a great success!

Reforest The Bluegrass is designed to recreate pre-settlement, streamside forests
that were once native to the inner Bluegrass Region of Kentucky. Through the efforts
of thousands of volunteers, Lexington is progressively restoring the long-lost
benefits of streamside forests for generations to come. This is a crucial step
to protecting our valuable water resources and enhancing our living standards.
