Help us manage our planting sites!

There are more than 20 ‘Reforest the Bluegrass’ sites in Fayette County, covering over 200 acres of land. Invasive plants outcompete our native trees and shrubs reducing overall site diversity and limiting the ecosystem benefits provided by an intact, native woodland.

We need your help managing these sites!

If you are interested in volunteering with us to help manage past Reforest the Bluegrass sites, fill out the application below.
