Due to the waterfall, steep terrain, fragile habitat, and the wishes of our founder, Floracliff is
not open to daily visitation. The Sanctuary is open for guided tours by appointment
and offers a variety of walks, volunteer opportunities and hands-on workshops
to interested individuals and groups. Appointments are granted for small groups between 5 and 15 inidividuals. For more information on any of the
following please contact the preserve manager at 859-351-7770 or email@example.com.
Special programs are available for garden clubs, small school
groups, and other groups interested in visiting Floracliff.
Private tours are limited to groups of 5-15 people. There is a suggested donation of $10/person for private tours.
The Floracliff Field Studies is a series of workshops that began in 2012 and are designed
to highlight biodiversity through hands-on experience and in-depth lectures.
Workshop topics have covered mushrooms, aquatic diversity, conifers, ferns, herpetology, insects and spiders, spring fora, geology, and more. Workshop
participants gain experience in species identification and handling, survey and collection techniques, and other field activities. Indoor activities cover natural history, ecology, life cycles, behavior, and more. While the workshops are open
to anyone, we think they are of particular interest to naturalists,
biology students, science educators, and land managers, as well as those
with a strong passion for the subject. Learn more about the workshops
A variety of research projects have been conducted on the preserve. Those interested in research projects are welcome to submit
proposals. Permits must be obtained through the Kentucky
State Nature Preserves Commission.
