Kentucky Biodiversity Day
Kentucky is rich with diverse life. Our state has more different types of trees, flowers, and many other species than most locations on earth, and some that are found only here. These species act interdependently to give Kentuckians the high quality of life, productivity and natural experience that we enjoy daily and market in tourism and economic development. The governor has declared a day to celebrate Biodiversity in Kentucky Day for the past three years. In celebration, legislators are invited to talk with people who have expertise in the nature and value of Kentucky’s natural riches. Young Kentuckians who have excelled in the Jim Claypool Art and Conservation Writing competition will receive their awards, and hope they will have the opportunity to meet their legislators for a photo opportunity. The theme for this year’s competition and celebration is Mission: H2O. A dozen organizations and agencies will be on hand from 9:30 through early afternoon to share their expertise and activities, including Kentucky Waterways Alliance, State Nature Preserves Commission, Fish & Wildlife, State Parks, Environmental Education Council and others. Event sponsors are the Kentucky Conservation Committee, Division of Conservation, Farm Bureau, State Nature Preserves Commission, Division of Water, Division of Forestry, and the Heritage Land Conservation Fund.
