Through the dedicated work of our state park naturalists, Kentucky State Parks protect and preserve the natural beauty of Kentucky.
Below are blogs and Facebook sites by region to help you stay up to date with each park's naturalist or their recreation group.
Kentucky State Naturalist
Ron Vanover grew up in McCreary County, Kentucky, on a small subsistence farm in Beulah Heights. The area is only a "stone's throw" from Cumberland Falls State Resort Park. It is here that Ron acquired his love and attention to detail for nature while observing the habits and movements of his father.
