Central Kentucky Wildlife Refuge Records


The Central Kentucky Wildlife Refuge is a 500-acre preserve, located 13 miles from Danville in the Parksville knob land and bordering a stretch of the North Rolling Fork. The refuge is open to all as a protected area for the enjoyment and study of nature - a large, typical area of Boyle County set aside as a permanent sanctuary for plant and animal forms native to Central Kentucky.

Collection Description

This collection contains miscellaneous material relating to the Central Kentucky Wildlife Refuge, and was placed in the Centre College Special Collections to provide a permanent, central location for the records of the Refuge. Although the collection is of some value to researchers, it is primarily intended for the use of CKWR members.
