Preserving Kentucky's Natural Landscapes

STATE OF AFFAIRS 12/08/10:  We've talked previously about historic preservation - legal protection of certain structures because of their historical significance. But did you know that a similar preservation method exists for natural landscapes? If a piece of land is designated as a nature preserve, that means it's been recognized for its natural significance and protected by law for scientific and educational purposes. On Wednesday we'll learn about Kentucky's nature preserves, and also take a look at the preservation and science underway at Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest.
