On June 24, Whole Foods Market Louisville (4944 Shelbyville Rd, Louisville, Kentucky 40207) will be hosting a special fundraising day of grilling, local vendors and farmers all while giving 5% of their store stores to benefit the Kentucky Natural Lands Trust!
Since forming in 1995 the Kentucky Natural Lands Trust has protected over 7,000 acres of wildlands, and assisted in the protection of over 25,000 additional acres through their partnerships.
Lands that KNLT has helped protect include Blanton Forest Nature Preserve, Archer Benge State Nature Preserve, and E. Lucy Braun State Park Nature Preserve. Their Pine Mountain Wildlands Corridor project aims to protect the 125-mile ridgeline in south eastern Kentucky and represents the largest conservation effort in Kentucky history.
KNLT is also one of the Forecastle Foundation's partner organizations. In September 2014, the foundation donated $14,000 towards the Pine Mountain Project. The donation ensures the protection of 28 acres of the corridor.
So time that grocery trip up just right and plan to head to Whole Foods Market Louisville (4944 Shelbyville Rd, Louisville, Kentucky 40207) so that you too can help us rebuild the world's natural awesomeness!
