Our property consists of 575 acres, of which 275 acres encompass one of the largest contiguous forested areas in Woodford County. The remaining 300 acres are utilized as an agricultural operation in addition to our programs.
As of March 1, 2013, LAC is excited to offer horseback riding trails that are open to the public. We have three trails of varying lengths. Access to the trailhead is through our west gate at 570 Milner Road. Trailer parking is available for a $10 fee.
Several federally funded land management programs help further our mission and provide additional educational opportunities.
CRP-Conservation Reserve Program
In the last 10 years, over 15,000 trees (seedlings) have been planted to help restore environmentally sensitive land for conservation benefits. Through CRP, we are able to plant trees that will improve water quality, prevent soil erosion, and eventually produce habitat for native wildlife.
TSI- Timber Stand Improvement
We work closely with the KY Department of Forestry to improve the overall quality and lifespan of our forest. Through this partnership, we work to reduce the number of non-native species and improve wildlife habitat.
WHIP- Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program
Since 2005, we have partnered with the NRSC to restore native prairie grasses and wildflowers. LAC is already seeing the benefits. Since it's inauguration, we regularly observe fox, deer, birds of prey, turkey, and quail in the area.
