Bernheim Under Threat Roadshow coming to Sisters of Loretto Motherhouse

By Bernheim

Informative meeting aimed at educating the public about LG&E threat to conservation land

Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest is bringing its “Bernheim Under Threat Roadshow” to Marion County on Tuesday, Feb. 18 at 2 p.m. at the Sisters of Loretto Mother House.

The 16,000-plus-acre forest is hosting a series of roadshows to help people understand the imminent threat that is being posed to this pristine and protected land. An LG&E natural gas pipeline threatens the integrity of Bernheim Forest. This proposed seizure of conservation land ignores easements that have been put in place to protect the biologically diverse land. This threat, should it become a reality, will have an irreversible impact on Bernheim’s wildlife, clean air and water, visitors, and the quality of life throughout the surrounding communities.

The “Bernheim Under Threat ” Roadshow is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 18 at 2 p.m. at the Sisters of Loretto Motherhouse on 515 Nerinx Road in Nerinx, Ky. Please contact Jessie Rathburn at for additional information.

Bernheim needs the support of the general public to help eliminate this threat. Bernheim Under Threat Roadshows are dedicated to educating residents in nearby communities about the proposed pipeline threat Bernheim faces and how the community can take immediate action to save the forest.
