Land Stewardship & Conservation Task Force

Department: Kentucky Conservation Committee
Authority: HCR 93-2008
Status: Active
Term: The task force shall serve for a period of two years.
Description: The task force will now try and take the best aspects of these other states' programs and mold them into one that will be best for Kentucky's needs. A coordinated Stewardship and Conservation Program will provide funds for the protection of not only sensitive ecosystems, but also lands with recreation, education, and scenic value as well as working lands such as woodlands and working farms. Perhaps most importantly, it will provide a clearly defined procedure for receiving funds and dispersing them in a systematic manner in order to make the most of our resources. The Task Force is a diverse one and includes representation from environmental, sportsman and conservation groups as well as industry and commercial interests. Its goal is to have “Conserve Kentucky” in place by 2010.
