The Salato Wildlife Education Center in Frankfort is celebrating Kentucky's diverse wildlife April 22 -26. Join the Salato staff for a week full of activities, games and programs. You can make bluebird nest boxes, take a hike, remove invasive plants with the Salato team, or even catch critters at the Dragonfly Marsh. Visit our website at for a full listing of special events celebrating Earth Day.

Once again, the Salato Center will be giving away free trees to the first 500 visitors who visit on Earth Day, April 22. The first 500 families will receive a burr oak or redbud sapling. These trees can help replenish habitat and provide an additional food source for Kentucky's wildlife. In addition to giving back to Kentucky's resources, you will also add beauty to any landscape. Limit one tree a family while supplies last.
