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 east of the Rockies, in their natural habitat, or view old growth forests that predate the arrival of the pilgrims. 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 and learn about conservation efforts. Plan your next Kentucky nature adventure and experience the true outdoors!
