‘Kentucky's Natural Heritage’ Exhibit at Greenbo Lake State Resort Park
GREENUP, Ky. – As a celebration of its 35th anniversary, the Kentucky State Nature Preserves Commission has put together a photo exhibit that is touring the state, including three Kentucky State Park locations.
The exhibit is made up of nature photographs, mostly from the book “Kentucky’s Natural Heritage: An Illustrated Guide to Biodiversity,” which presents a persuasive argument for conservation of the state’s biodiversity. Organized by a team from the Kentucky State Nature Preserves Commission, the book is richly detailed and lavishly illustrated with more than 250 color photos, maps and charts, showing off the Commonwealth’s amazing diversity.
The photographs, printed on aluminum to give a unique look, will be on display during the month of September in the lodge corridor of Greenbo Lake State Resort Park in Greenup, where the book will also be available for purchase.
Greenbo Lake State Resort Park is on KY 1, 18 miles north of Interstate 64 from the Grayson exit, or eight miles south of U.S. 23, the Country Music Highway, on KY 1. The park features the Jesse Stuart Lodge, with 36 rooms, convention center and Anglers’ Cove Restaurant. The park has a 225-acre lake for boating and fishing, tennis courts and 25 miles of multi-use trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding. The campground is open through Oct. 31. Greenbo’s amphitheater features musical concerts and plays during the summer and fall.
