The folks at Bernheim Forest are going on the road across Kentucky in their effort to fight two threats to the forest.

  1. LG&E is suing landowners in Bullitt County, including Bernheim, to run a new natural gas pipeline through a section of the forest. 
  2. The Kentucky Department of Transportation has a plan that would build a Gene Snyder like bypass through Bernheim Forest to connect Louisville with that region.

The director of Bernheim, Mark Wourms and other employees will be attending these meetings which are open to the public. The first meeting in August drew more than 100 people.
