    HENDERSON, Ky. (AP) — Federal officials plan to announce a new national wildlife refuge in western Kentucky.

    A statement from the U.S. Department of the Interior says Secretary David Bernhardt and U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell will join other dignitaries Friday in Henderson to announce the Green River National Wildlife Refuge.

    The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service says the ceremony will take place on the first 10-acre (4-hectare) tract of what will eventually to be a 24,000-acre (9,713-hectare) refuge. The area offers habitat for a variety of plants, animals, birds and fish, as well as outdoor recreation opportunities for visitors.

    It is the second such refuge that is located solely in Kentucky.
     
  2. Outdoor recreation with no hunting of course. Enough of that in Falls of Rough.

    Several of the NWR are hunted. I hunted two several times for deer in Indiana. Granted it was a draw hunt for firearm on one but open to everyone after that for archery. The other had draw hunts for both archery and firearm. Just has some closed areas no hunting is allowed.
     
  4. 24000 acres of public would be nice for sure
