Kentucky is rich. It has more miles of streams and rivers than any other state except Alaska. Forests cover 50 percent of the state. And once upon a time, the savanna in the central part fed wildlife and humans with its lush biodiversity. This year’s Kentucky Botanical Symposium, Oct. 9-10 on the University of Kentucky campus, will celebrate that richness with an exploration of habitat restoration efforts and ecosystem research.

Kentucky Wood Expo returns to Masterson Station Park in Lexington Sept. 18-19, and UK Cooperative Extension will have a big hand in educational and fun activities for the entire family.

Forestry Professor Chris Barton will add focus on environmental and natural resource issues as director of UK's Appalachian Center.
