FOREST HEALTH UPDATE! Five-hundred Laricobius nigrinus , a species of specialist predatory beetles the feed solely on Hemlock Wooly Adelgid (HWA), were released in the Daniel Boone National Forest last month. KDF’s Forest Health Program continues to release these hungry beetles within our state’s native hemlock stands as a biological control method for HWA, the invasive forest pest. KDF’s Alexandra Blevins (Forest Health Specialist) and Abe Nielsen (Forest Health Program Manager) were joined by the new hemlock treatment crew for this latest release. The all women crew started in September and has been treating hemlocks in decline due to HWA all over the eastern stretches of the Commonwealth. Kenna Smith (Crew Lead), Erica Morgan, and Abby Odegard (Forest Ranger Techs) aided in this vital release and will continue their crucial treatments throughout the winter into next spring.

Saved for your memories now.

We would like to give a BIG thank you to the Civilian Conservation Corps for creating structures and trails throughout Cumberland Falls State Resort Park AND to the Special Maintenance crew for coming out and restoring historic structures such as this Picnic Shelter. We are so grateful for the hard work and craftsmanship that this crew does for our park system.

Grove Campgrounds staying open longer

London Ranger District ~ Camping anyone? The weather is perfect, the leaves are turning, and Grove Campground is extending their camping season through November 30th!

Reservations for “B” Loop can be made through The rest of the campground will remain on a first-come, first-served basis. Working together with American Land & Leisure, we are able to provide camping opportunities at a time when our concessionaire campgrounds close for the season.

For those that normally enjoy fall camping at Bee Rock, or hunters or backpackers that normally dispersed camp, you’ll now have another option complete with hot showers and flush toilets, along with water and electric hookups at your site. Primitive walk-in sites are also available with access to showers and bathrooms, but without water and electric hook-ups. #FallCamping #GroveCampground

Kentucky State Parks

Olivia brings us a web of information. Thanks Olivia.

Spiders are an essential part of Kentucky’s ecosystem and are in every Kentucky State Park. In today’s Recreation Station segment from Cumberland Falls State Resort Park, program supervisor Olivia Immitt takes a closer look at the benefits spiders bring to nature. #kystateparks

Open with a new flavor to enjoy.

How did we turn the traditional Appalachian Apple Stack Cake into an ice cream? We combined spiced apples with cake pieces in a base of Buttermilk ice cream. We then top it off with ribbons of apple butter made by Friends Drift Inn Farm Produce. The result is unlike anything you have had: decadent with just the right touch of apple and cinnamon, sure to get you in the mood for cooler weather and changing colors.

Our fall flavors are here, and you have to experience the magic of our homemade ice cream! Stay tuned tomorrow for a full list of flavors for the week. Come and get it Tuesday through Saturday, 1pm to 9pm. #TasteTheMoonbow #AppalachianMagic

McCreary County Hikers

Update for hikes thru McCreary Co Extension Service group McCreary Co Hikers.

Good morning to you all,
It is again time to decide the hikes for the upcoming season.
With much discussion of the hiking committee , we have come to the decision it is still far to dangerous to hold group hikes.
This discussion included what happens if someone gets hurt, what happens if people come and as hikes progress social distancing becomes a forgotten protocol. No matter how safe we all start out we feel it's just to soon . We have decided that the February Eagle Weekend will be the first get together if that is held at Reelfoot Tn .

Some of us have already made our camping reservations. When we spoke to the park the tentative date is the first weekend in Feb. Of course this is all subject to change due to virus concerns.

We are not encouraging group hikes but you know a friend who needs a little encouragement and company to get outside. Please wear your masks or have them handy for your own and others protection.

We hope to start hikes again as McCreary Co Hikers the first weekend in March 2021.

Thank you to you all for your input and compassion.
