Frankfort, KY 40601

The Clyde E. Buckley Sanctuary encourages native flora and fauna, and provides an active educational program. Thousands of students, teachers, and families attend presentations every year, or take a leisurely stroll among these pleasant rural surroundings.

The Sanctuary consists of 374 acres along the Kentucky River, in both Woodford and Franklin Counties. Habitats include approximately fifty acres of fields, and two ponds surrounded by mixed-mesophytic forest on the transition zone between northern and southern flora and fauna. A gorge bisects the area and the subsurfaces are limestone and rich in minerals and fossils.

This Sanctuary is the only area in Kentucky managed by the National Audubon Society.

Mission

"To protect the integrity of the Sanctuary, its birds, wildlife and habitats by developing strong support, sound management, and excellent educational programs."
