Louisville Gas and Electric (LG&E) requested an easement from Bernheim for the proposed Bullitt County Natural Gas Pipeline. The tracts known as the Cedar Grove Wildlife Corridor are subject to a conservation easement and deed restrictions prohibiting destruction of forests, streams and springs, and prohibiting the transfer of property by Bernheim for non-conservation purposes or the granting of easements for non-conservation purposes including natural gas pipelines. Alternative routes exist that would not destroy conservation lands.
My family and I have many memories with Bernheim Forest that I cherish. I want to continue building memories at Bernheim with my son.
It's not fair to take away homes for wildlife and take away more of Forest!
I stand with Bernheim to protect the environment, provide homes for wildlife, trails for families, and so much more!
This forest is where I caught my first fish in 1999 at 4. It’s where my parents got married in 1988. These two spots were less than 200 yards apart, and this due to chance. My family spent every summer fishing, hiking, or showing off this amazing conservation of Kentucky wildlife that is so rarely protected to our out of state relatives. It helped me understand the value of protecting nature, and how important it is to see nature as part of our heritage as kentuckians. Please do not break up this central Kentucky treasure. It’ll show a great deal of compassion on your part to help preserve our growth as a community in the right direction. The best part is, there are alternative plans that can preserve your needs for meeting growing demand.
Lg&e has other options there’s no need to destroy our forest
