Elkhorn Creek - beauty beneath the surface!
Our stream team found 11 fish – and 5 of them were darters (!) - orangethroat, rainbow, greenside, fantail and johnny darters. And 4 mussell species (and misc invertebrates) were found too (list on our web site). They were all beautiful! Thanks to Matt Thomas (KY Fish and Wldlf) and Jessica Schuester (Div of Water) and the seining/netting helpers and everyone who came to the Elkhorn event!

WWLT Thanks Urbanize for Innovative Donation
Things change - Frankfort's Capital Tower is gone but the nearby apartments are renovated - now called Urban Woods. They have been renovated by the company Urbanize, Inc. It is a business driven by contributing to the surrounding community, in this case, Frankfort and the Kentucky River. And, taking community giving a step further, Urbanize is partnering with Woods and Waters Land Trust to ensure the beautiful river landscape is conserved. A portion of their rental income is given to the land trust for local conservation. “The rivers and forests are the character of this region and we want to make sure they continue to make this a great place to live” said Daniel Strong, Urbanize, Inc.
Woods and Waters Land Trust thanks Urbanize Inc. for its innovative approach to conservation! And for envisioning conservation as an integral part of life on the Kentucky River.
