Bluegrass Land Conservancy


Bluegrass Land Conservancy (BLC) is a nationally-accredited land trust that works to protect land in the greater Bluegrass Region through permanent conservation easements. We work with landowners to promote the preservation of land for agriculture, historic and cultural heritage, wildlife habitat, natural resources, water quality, and scenic open space for current and future generations.

Bluegrass Land Conservancy (BLC) has partnered with 119 families to permanently protect more than 27,000 acres of prime farmland and natural resources for current and future generations. Our conservation easements include over 4,000 acres of wildlife habitat, nearly 100 miles of streams and rivers, and 66 miles of scenic roads! BLC protects and stewards every property in our portfolio in perpetuity - and we consider the conservation value to our community and future generations to be well worth the effort. But our goal to increase the pace of conservation while maintaining the level of excellence we have achieved, as the first nationally-accredited land trust in the state of Kentucky, is dependent on the generosity of BLC supporters.

A gift through the GoodGiving Challenge is a generous approach to taking action on your commitment to land and natural resource protection. Your support goes directly to mission-critical needs, including the ongoing stewardship obligations of BLC, current and future land protection outreach and projects, and education efforts on the lasting benefits of land conservation.
