Venerable Trees: History, Biology, and Conservation in the Bluegrass
-with Tom Kimmerer

When the first settlers arrived in Kentucky's Bluegrass region, they found an astonishing landscape of open woodland grazed by vast herds of bison. Farmers quickly replaced the bison with cattle, sheep, and horses, but left many of the trees to shade their pastures. That's why central Kentucky and central Tennessee still boast one of the largest populations of pre-settlement trees in the nation, in both rural and urban areas. In his book, Tom Kimmerer documents the history that led to the preservation of these old-growth trees- and explores the reasons why they are now in danger.

  The Locust Grove Afternoon Lecture Series is held the first Wednesday of each month. Dessert and coffee are served at 1:00 pm with the lecture immediately following at 1:15 PM. Admission is $5, $3 for Friends of Historic Locust Grove. Reservations are not required.
