We are excited to announce that Kentucky Waterways Alliance and U.S.Forest Service-Daniel Boone National Forest are continuing our partnership to protect, restore and celebrate the Red River in eastern Kentucky. We received a Wild & Scenic Rivers Stewardship Partnership grant from River Network that will be used toward streambank restoration, environmental education, and cleanups for river health and enjoyment for more people now and in the future. Mitigation work will take place at Big Branch Canoe Launch, the upper-most-public-Red-River launch site and recreation area. Stay tuned for progress reports!
