Mission: Knlt is working to conserve natural areas on pine mountain and across the state. Knlt's first project was raising funds to preserve blanton forest, kentucky's largest old growth forest. Since then, knlt has protected thousands of acres of kentucky's wild lands across the state. Much of the acreage is now part of state parks, the kentucky state nature preserves systems, state wildlife refuges, or in other conservation management. Nearly 8,981 acres are still under our ownership. We provide stewardship services for these and other conservation properties on pine mountain. We also hold conservation easements in various parts of the state.
