WHERE: London District and Rockcastle Creek WMA; 2 hours (south) from Lexington, KY. Exact location will be provided.

WHEN: Saturday, May 18th, Time TBD (appx. 9 am to 2 pm, appreciation meal at end optional)

WHY: Enhance forest regeneration, restore forest condition, improve hunter access


The event will begin with U.S. Forest Service (USFS), state wildlife agency, and other representatives on hand to answer your questions and provide background info/goals of the project. We will also hear from MeatEater’s Mark Kenyon and NDA’s Matt Ross about the importance of improving our public lands, being involved, and why applying innovative, grassroots solutions can make all the difference.

Volunteers will then be given brief safety instructions, assigned to a group/team leader, and turned loose to achieve one or more of the above tasks in pre-determined locations by the USFS.

The day will end with some food and camaraderie, so bring a good attitude, a strong back, some protection from chiggers/ticks, and of course, an appetite! We will communicate via email with everyone that registers a few weeks before the event with important details of where to meet, what to bring and more.

If you have questions about this event or run into any issues getting registered, please contact our Senior Director of Conservation, Matt Ross.
