DAWSON SPRINGS, KY (5/3/12) – In celebration of its 35th anniversary, the Kentucky State Nature Preserves Commission has assembled a photo exhibit that is touring the state, including three Kentucky State Parks locations.
The exhibit is made up of nature photographs mostly from the book, “Kentucky’s Natural Heritage: An Illustrated Guide to Biodiversity,” which presents a persuasive argument for conservation of the state’s biodiversity. Organized by a team from the Kentucky State Nature Preserves Commission, the book is richly detailed and illustrated with more than 250 color photos, maps and charts, showing off the Commonwealth’s amazing diversity.
The photographs, printed on aluminum to give a unique look, will be on display during the month of May in the Clifty Creek Restaurant at the lodge of Pennyrile Forest State Resort Park near Dawson Springs, where the book is also available for purchase. The park is situated in the 14,000-acre Pennyrile State Forest, a showcase of hardwood trees. The state park has a lodge, cottages, restaurant, campground, equine camping and trails.
