Red River Watershed

Laura Gregory is the Red River Watershed Coordinator working with the Forest Service to implement the Watershed Plan. To learn more or get involved, contact Laura directly at: Laura@KWAlliance.org.

The Red River and many of its tributaries flow through Wolfe, Menifee, and Powell Counties in eastern Kentucky.  Creeks like Swift Camp, Gladie, Clifty, and Indian are special places to those who call these communities home.  Even though the Red River Watershed is a beloved resource with beautiful forests, scenic streams, and diverse wildlife, the waterways are threatened by loss of streamside vegetation, runoff from towns and agriculture, and recreational misuse. The Red River Gorge Restoration and Watershed Plan is part of a watershed planning project, and it addresses watershed-scale issues facing the Red River Watershed.
