Now Bluegrass Land Conservancy, the newly expanded service area spans the state’s two most populated metropolitan areas and covers the very best farmland in the region with 25,792 acres of natural and cultural resources already protected.

Proceeds from the event, which continues to be Bluegrass Conservancy’s primary fundraiser, are critical in our ability to assist local families across the Bluegrass region conserve their land.
