Bernheim Forest expanding with help of land donation

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – On Thursday Bernheim Forest completed the purchase of 162 acres from a longtime Bullitt County farmer and businessman as part of a forest expansion.

The family of the late Raymond Thurman sold the land to Bernheim to be protected for conservation. 

The land features a stream, oak, hickory and pine trees and rare cedar glades. Bernheim will do some restoration work and possibly open it to the public in the spring.
