The Kentucky Society of Natural History is a nonprofit organization incorporated in 1943 to promote the study of nature and the natural sciences. Members of the society enjoy nature, want to learn more, and share their experiences and knowledge with others. These goals are met through monthly meetings, field trips, publications, and conferences. Membership is open to all with an interest in nature, such as astronomy, botany, entomology, geology, mycology, ornithology, nature photography, zoology, etc. The society has members throughout Kentucky, and neighboring states.

Please do not forget to get your rooms at Natural Bridge and register with Pat Meyer, State treasurer. The rooms are being held for us up til March 24. I'm hoping for at least as good as the turnout that we had at Kenlake. The Spring conference is April 24,25 and 26.
The second item is that Pat Meyer is putting the KSNH State Treasurer position open as Berl is going to be president starting this fall. We need someone to step forward and be an active part of this organization. Pat will more than gladly assist/orientate this person to this position. With lots of our members having previously served as officers, we really would like to see some new faces step forward.
This organization, as all groups, rely on members to keep the cause going. Several exciting measures are in the works to keep the KSNH spark alive and recruit new members. We had a great meeting at the Bon Air library Jan. 22 and Wayne will share those items covered soon. As always I appreciate all input, good or bad, you members want to make in order to make this wonderful organization better.
The Falls Chapter of the Kentucky Society of Natural History is planning a first-day-of-Spring event at Indiana Caverns. We have made reservations tor this wonderful underground attraction in southern Indiana. http://www.indianacaverns.com/
The date of this event is March 21, and we will meet at the cavern for a 10:00 am tour that will last about an hour and a half. There is even a 25 min. boat ride on an under-ground river. There are about 120 steps, not all at the same time, on this tour. We will need a commitment of at least 12 folks to join us. Rates are $14 for adults and $8 for children 4 to 12. Please respond by March 13th if you will be able to attend.
