Founded in 1995, Bluegrass Conservancy works to protect the Bluegrass region of Kentucky through land conservation for future generations.
How we work
As a nationally accredited, community supported, 501(c)(3) nonprofit land trust, we work on a voluntary basis with landowners, community groups, and municipalities to encourage the preservation of land for agricultural viability, natural habitat, rural heritage, and scenic open space. Landowners or community groups contact us and we work with them on an individual and confidential basis to explore if conservation is right for them.
Since 1998 we have protected…
95 Miles of Rivers & Streams
21,600 Acres of prime farmland soils and soils of statewide importance
63 Farms that contain historic sites
10.29 Miles of scenic byway frontage
“1st Accredited Land Trust in Kentucky”
