Programs: Founded in 1995, bluegrass conservancy is a community-supported, nonprofit, nationally accredited land trust working to protect the bluegrass region of kentucky through land conservation for future generations. It encourages the preservation of these lands for agricultural viability, natural habitat, rural heritage, and scenic open space. Thanks to increasing community support, the conservancy has assisted numerous farm families to permanently protect over 27,000 acres using conservation easements. An all-volunteer board of directors governs bluegrass conservancy, while a small staff carries on our day-to-day operations such as assisting families with conserving their farms, providing guidance towards the long-term monitoring and stewardship of protected lands, upholding the long-term conservation vision for each property, and offering free community programs.
