Help Us Make Natural Areas Better!

Making a difference in your community can make a difference in your life. Evidence suggests that people who give their time and talents to others are often rewarded with better physical health—including lower blood pressure and a longer lifespan. There are many ways you can support natural areas including volunteering your time in support of programming or stewardship while making new friends, or becoming a member of Wilderness Louisville.  For all the ways you can contribute, please follow the links below.


Our focus is to raise funds and advocate for improvements at Jefferson Memorial Forest and within other natural areas managed by the Natural Areas Division of Louisville Metro Parks & Recreation.
