Mission
The purpose of the Environmental Education and Research Center (EERC) is to protect and enhance 307 acres of Kentucky's wild lands. EERC creates a collaborative learning facility which connects students, faculty, and staff to the environment through meaningful learning activities. This center will make every reasonable effort to provide access to all members of the Commonwealth while focusing on providing educational experiences that accommodate different learning abilities.

Program Areas
The EERC has flourished into a resource that benefits school children from across the Commonwealth, provides field instruction and research opportunities for higher education, protects Kentucky's natural resources, and meets the Coillege of Agriculture, Food Science, and Sustainable Systems (CAFSSS) high standards of excellence.

To fulfill our obligation with the Kentucky Heritage Land Conservation Fund Board (KHLCFB) developed and submited a Final Resource Management Plan which was accepted.
