Dear Friend,

Contributors and citizens like you have helped The Boone Conservancy continue protecting the natural landscapes of Boone County, as well as creating natural areas that are crucial to our community’s health and quality of life. With your help in the last year alone, we have served Boone County and expanded our organization by:

•   positioning our organization for the future acceptance and stewardship of new acreage

•   planning and sponsoring the 2016 Northern Kentucky Conservancy Luncheon, featuring KY Energy and Environment Cabinet Secretary Charles Snavely, an event that brought regional conservancies, government officials, board members, local leaders, and conservation professionals together to discuss current issues and successes in conservation

•   sponsoring Reforest NKY 2016— a tree-planting initiative that has planted native woodland trees on over 36 acres of land since 2007—350 volunteers planted1,500 trees at England-Idlewild Park in one morning!

•   strategically removing invasive plant species on the 200 acres of land under our protection

As the only non-profit in Boone County enabled to accept land and easements for protection in perpetuity, we have a big commitment to our community. We are committed to protecting natural landscapes, creating natural spaces for passive  recreation and connecting with nature, encouraging and creating opportunities for outdoor education, and balancing conservation with residential and business growth. For TBC to continue its mission and this important work, we ask for your support and assistance.  It’s easy to get involved and contribute to TBC’s success:

The Northern Kentucky Conservancy Luncheon

The Boone Conservancy was happy to partner with The Kenton and Campbell Conservancies in sponsoring the Northern Kentucky Conservancy Luncheon on October 25. Hosted at the Triple Crown Country Club by Boone Co. Judge Executive Gary Moore, Kenton Co. Judge Executive Kris Knochelmann, and Campbell Co. Judge Executive Steve Pendery, the event was a networking opportunity for conservation professionals, local businesses and leaders, and government officials.  The event featured a presentation by Charles Snavely, Secretary of the KY Energy and Environment Cabinet which led to an important discussion on conservation tax credits and funding. We are proud to have helped provide a platform for these groups to collaborate and discuss current issues and topics in conservation. 

TBC would like to thank Viox & Viox, Inc. and TBC Board Member Greg Larison for helping fund the luncheon, and the Triple Crown Country Club, TBC Vice Chair Sherrie Lou Noel, and Ron Noel for assisting with the venue.
