reforest northern ky
NKUCFC's annual native woodland tree planting event
Reforest Northern Kentucky is an annual, all-volunteer project organized by the Council to restore native Kentucky woodlands. The reforestation project is responsible for planting thousands of tree seedlings on public, protected previously mowed properties in Boone, Kenton and Campbell Counties.
Reforest NKY is an opportunity for public education and awareness about the importance of trees in our region. By planting trees, our forest landscape and legacy is restored. Trees and forests provide significant, measurable benefits to our communities improving the environment, economy and our quality of life.
Reforest Northern Kentucky is a successful, sustainable event with a proven track record. Since 2007, more than 36 acres of protected public park and school land have been planted with native woodland trees and nearly 2,500 volunteers have participated.
All are welcome and encouraged to attend! Bring your friends, family, and shovels to help make a difference planting trees in your community.
UPDATED: Reforest Northern Kentucky 2020
Due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) impacts and limitations, Reforest NKY has been UPDATED to a new program. The annual volunteer event, Reforest NKY, will be ‘Trunk A Tree’ this year. We invite you to attend this event on Saturday, May 30th, from 9:30am to 11:30am at the Boone County Extension Enrichment Center Parking Lot (1824 Patrick Dr., Burlington, KY 41005). You will drive through in the comfort of your own car to collect a tree to plant in your own yard - reforesting Northern Kentucky on your own terms! A ‘Grab N Go’ educational packet will also be available.
