Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest is at the forefront of conservation by advancing environmental research, demonstrating sustainable practices, and creating the next generation of environmental stewards. Bernheim’s innovative conservation efforts and our commitment to connecting people with nature is helping to show the way to a more sustainable future.
With its 92-year history of bird conservation, Bernheim leads the region in avian research. We are the first organization in the region to have installed Motus system, which tracks songbirds using LifeTag technology linking Kentucky to the global avian research and helping identify the causes of the decline the bird population over the last fifty years.
Opening May 2021 is Bernheim’s Playcosystem, a ten-acre natural play laboratory for all children. Playcosytem will encourage environmental stewardship by creating opportunities for children to connect with nature through nature-based free play.
In the last two years, over 20,000 children have explored, played, and discovered nature at Bernheim, a critical step in developing the next generation of conservation leaders. Our work in environmental stewardship would not be possible without your contributions.
