Plan Protects 155 Acres of Forest Land in Bullitt

Associated Press - June 1, 2012

BEREA, Ky. (AP) — The Kentucky Natural Lands Trust and Fort Knox have joined to protect 155 acres of forest land in Bullitt County.

The land trust says the property is almost completely forested and is part of the Fort Knox to Bernheim Forest wildlife migratory corridor.

Land trust Executive Director Hugh Archer says the property connects larger blocks of forest land and waterways. It contains mature bottomland hardwood forest with large swamp white oak, sycamore, box elder and sweetgum. There is also animal activity, including river otters.

The trust says the project was made possible through the Army Compatible Use Buffer program and donors to the land trust. The Army established the program to limit encroachments around Fort Knox that would disrupt or diminish training capabilities and protect natural habitats and ecological systems.
