LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Forecastle Foundation is donating nearly $30,000 to conservation projects in Kentucky and Brazil.
$14,000 of that donation will go to the Kentucky Natural Lands Trust, which works to preserve and restore wildlands. The money will allow the Pine Mountain project to buy and protect nearly 28 acres of land in the Pine Mountain Corridor in southeastern Kentucky. That area is a migration path and refuge for hundreds of species, some of which are not found anywhere else in the world.
Another $14,000 will go to a partner organization, the Guayaki Foundation, which is dedicated to protecting the Atlantic Rainforest. The foundation says the two projects are linked by the migration of several neotropical species.
The Forecastle Foundation was founded by J.K. McKnight, who also founded the Forecastle Music Festival.
