Hi,ladies and gentlemen! Here is the Grayson County link that we looked at in class to the Kentucky State Nature Preserves Commission in Frankfort. I also am including a link to the endangered, threatened and special concern plants and animals for the state of Kentucky.  I will try to put links to information on each of the species you chose to research.  Enjoy reading and searching for information you can use in your editorial.
