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.
I hiked a portion of your incredible property Sun. Jan. 26 with my family and was overcome by the incredible beauty and feeling of a safe haven that your institution provides. As a manager of plant collections at Fernwood, I particularly appreciated your natural and cultivated settings. I intend to return again when visiting my family in southern Kentucky.
Fossil fuels like natural gas are destroying our planet. Intact ecosystems are our greatest defense against the climate crisis. No pipeline!
Piplines being built acriss this country are so unnecessary. These piplibes are being built for profit...not the benefit if these people.
