Urban Conservation Initiative
The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust has granted $3 million to 21st Century Parks, developers and operators of The Parklands, a donor-supported public park system. The nearly 4,000-acre Parklands, Louisville’s newest park system, will apply the funds to restore the natural mosaic of native Upper South/Midwest ecosystems, thereby enhancing plant and wildlife habitats, while creating outdoor educational experiences for park visitors. The grant will also fund the development of a long-term plan for the management and sustainability of native Kentucky resources within The Parklands—ranging from mature forests, oak savannas and meadows, to streams and riparian corridors.

This album will feature photos of the progress.
