Kentucky Wildlife & Nature
See Kentucky Elk, Old Growth Forests & More!
Want to go on safari, but only have a few days? Head to the “wilds” of Kentucky. Visitors can embark on Kentucky wildlife tours and watch the Eastern Kentucky elk herd, the largest herd in America east of the Rockies, in their natural habitat, or view old growth forests that predate the arrival of the pilgrims in the area.
Kentucky Wildlife Management Areas, Kentucky Nature Preserves, National Forest and State and National Parks are great places to commune with nature and our native Kentucky wildlife. Each park offers the chance to catch views of area wildlife and learn about local game and fish conservation efforts.
The list of wildlife viewing destinations below includes forests, parks, wildlife management areas and other places to get out in the field for sightings, education and adventure. For the sportsmen, there are also plenty of opportunities for hunting in KY. Plan your next Kentucky nature adventure and experience the true outdoors!
