This is where the future is – in the unique combination of
advocacy for the right decisions about land and water usage for the
community, and conserving land at the same time.”
– Rand Wentworth, President, the Land Trust Alliance
One of River Fields’ primary goals is to provide education
on the importance of the river, the cultural and natural resources
of the river corridor, public access needs, and open space protection
as well as growth issues that might jeopardize these resources.
To accomplish this goal, we provide vital information to and work
closely with local citizen’s organizations, decision makers,
and the news media. We accomplish this through a number of tools,
including meetings and presentations, group emails, letters to the
editor of area media outlets and distribution of fact sheets. River
Fields keeps area residents informed about critical topics that impact
the river and our region.
We have also educated members of the legal community about conservation
easements, the National Historic Preservation Act, and the Safe Drinking
Water Act through continuing education seminars at the Louisville
Bar Association. Our education efforts continue during the 2008 session
of the Kentucky General Assembly.
River Fields uses a wide range of educational tools to inform the
public, including fact sheets, email alerts, and events such as tours
of historic and conserved properties.
