TODAY Environmental Education programming at Pine Mountain is indebted to the foundations of the original program conceived in the 1970s. The early program served a range of school programs within and without the state of Kentucky. Reaching more than 3,000 children each year, the early programs strived to educate our future natural resource stewards. The programming today follows the founding philosophy and has been expanded to include adult programs, workshops, and retreats that utilize the rich ecology of the school setting.
In addition to the School’s work with educators, it is charged to preserve the 800-acre Bickford State Nature Preserve, including removing invasive species and protecting the local hemlock trees against the invasive woolly adelgid.
The current environmental programming may be followed on the Environmental Education page of the Pine Mountain Settlement School’s main website.
