Why Tap Walnut Trees? Walnut Sap Flow and Syrup Production
Many landowners grow walnut for timber production and/or nut production. Now perhaps there is a third reason – syrup production. Join Mike Rechlin of Future Generations University in this webinar as he introduces you to the research they are doing on using walnut as another syrup producing tree species.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture has programs to help honey producers every step of the way – from plants to the final product. We have programs to help protect and conserve habitat, protect your investments and recover from disasters impacting your operation.

The water quality standards protect Kentucky waterways by setting limits on pollutants and by limiting the types of developments and pollution allowed in some “exceptional” waters. This year, as they do every three years (triennial), the Kentucky Division of Water is updating those standards to make them more current. KWA always prepares detailed comments and submits them to the Division of Water and we will share our comments with our members and supporters when they are complete. You can comment any time up until September 30, 2021 and we hope you will let the state know that you want standards that are based in science and that will lead to healthier waterways for people and wildlife.
