Louisville Nature Center


WCSM Conservation Chairman arranged for a field trip to the Louisville Nature Center (LNC), located near the Louisville Zoo. The visit to the center included a private program and tour of the building and the grounds by LNC Executive Director Rebecca Minnick. The group visited late in the year, so therefore, many of the native flowers and plants were not in bloom. The group plans on revisiting the site during the growing season. 

The Beargrass Creek State Nature Preserve offers people of all ages a retreat from the surrounding urban areas. This 41-acre urban forest provides critical greenspace and recreation opportunities in the city. The only urban nature preserve owned by the Kentucky State Nature Preserves Commission, Beargrass Creek State Nature Preserve offers:

  • Over 2 miles of hiking trails
  • A diversity of plants – 180 species of trees, shrubs and wildflowers recorded
  • Over 150 species of resident and migratory birds documented
  • At least 30 butterfly species observed
  • And amazing wildlife viewing opportunities
