Harvest Complete

With logging completed in General Butler State Resort Park, state officials are getting ready to start a reforesting program – with help from the public.

The Kentucky Division of Forestry is inviting adults and children to help plant 1,200 seedlings in the park’s new “tree nursery” from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 17, at the back entrance on 11th Street. The seedlings include native species, such as oak, pine and persimmon, said Gil Lawson, a spokesmen for the state Department of Parks in Frankfort.
