State Adds To Big Rivers Wildlife Area
The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources and the Kentucky Division of Forestry have purchased more than 4,200 acres of property in western Kentucky for $12.6 million dollars to preserve it for activities such as hunting, fishing and wildlife viewing.
The two agencies purchased the property from the Nature Conservancy of Kentucky last week. Along with 2,488 acres acquired in Union County in 2011, the Big Rivers Wildlife Management Area and State Forest will cover more than 6,700 acres.
The new acquisition runs along the Tradewater and Ohio rivers in Crittenden County.
