Kentucky Heartwood was formed in 1992 by people concerned about logging, mining, and off-road vehicles on the Daniel Boone National Forest (DBNF).
We advocate for the greatest protections of Kentucky’s public lands, with the twin values of protecting and restoring ecological integrity and a reverence and respect for wild nature as our guiding principles.
Through public education, outreach, forest monitoring, and the suite of administrative and legal avenues of public participation and recourse, Kentucky Heartwood continues our tradition of effective advocacy.

Letters + Public Comments
Public comments and letters to government agencies are crucial in the fight against environmental impacts like logging, runoff, and deforestation because they give individuals a powerful voice to express their concerns and demand action.
By sharing our knowledge, experiences, and aspirations for a greener future, we can inspire decision-makers to prioritize sustainable practices, protect our forests, and preserve the natural beauty of our planet for generations to come. Together, our voices have the strength to create positive change and build a better, more sustainable world.
