Every year, River Fields members are invited to enjoy the beauty of fall in one of the most beautiful settings imaginable, on a Fall Color Walk at Wolf Pen Branch Mill Farm. The walk is led by Garry Libby, a botanist with expertise in the exceptional collection of plant life on this unique property.
We hope you will attend this year’s Fall Color Walk on Sunday, October 8 at 1:30 pm. This event is free for members and $25 for non-members (one year membership is included). To make reservations please contact Vanessa Castle at 502-583-3060 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nestled on 412 acres of undeveloped land along Wolf Pen Branch, the farm features a rare collection of native wildflowers in the region, a federally endangered plant species, and an c. 1850 historic water-powered mill.
Sallie Bingham, noted writer and founder of the Kentucky Foundation for Women, owns the property. She donated the conservation easement in 1999 so the property would remain undeveloped and protected for future generations. The farm and the mill are forever preserved through a conservation easement co-held by River Fields, Inc. and the Kentucky Heritage Council.
The walk fills very quickly so interested participants are urged to make reservations as soon as possible. The roughly 2-hour walk is through varying terrains, so sensible walking shoes and appropriate dress for the weather is strongly suggested.
