Current Projects

Griffith Woods

The Friends of Griffith Woods have raised and planted hundreds of trees on site, most of them from seed gathered on the property. Some of the overstock seedlings have been used for restoration and streambank improvement projects in the region.

  • Current workdays have focused on removal of bush honeysuckle and seeding the cleared areas with appropriate seeds harvested on site. See the Upcoming Events page for more information about joining the fun.

  • Griffith Woods is a nature preserve containing the largest remnants of the original wilderness that once covered Central Kentucky before the time of Daniel Boone. Its open savanna woodland is the best example in the Bluegrass for researchers to learn about the unique ecosystem that once prevailed in this region. Efforts are underway to eradicate invading species and restore indigenous plants to this protected area, which is now owned and managed by Kentucky Fish and Wildlife.
