* The Taylor Legacy Continues: Elk Cave Farm Gravel Switch
The University of Kentucky Forestry Extension & Elk Cave Farm (AKA The Taylor Family Tree Farm) will be hosting a forestry field day for woodland owners. The Taylors are active KWOA members. Dr. Clifton Taylor was on the KWOA/KWOF board for many years and his son, Scott Taylor, was just elected Vice President of KWOA. The family farm reflects the value of management practices on the ground and the importance of succession planning.

The goal is to introduce agencies and programs that promote conservation practices to those just getting started. Registration is $15 and includes a meal.
