Did you know?

• Fort Thomas’ land area is 3,661 acres and 31% of it is still forested.

• About 86 acres are considered high quality (large crown) forest and another 200 acres are medium quality (medium crown) forest.

• We have nearly 4 miles of land fronting the Ohio
River.

• Our forests are threatened by invasion of non-native plants, insects, and diseases and pressure from urbanization.

• Measurable benefits of forests include biological diversity, air quality improvement, noise, and light buffering, property values, and lower crime.

• Other benefits related to recreation, outdoor education, wildlife habitat, natural heritage, and community way of life.

Get Involved

We are a 501(c)3 land trust. Our mission is to protect our surrounding forests, encourage and/or oversee conservation easements, educate the public, develop community activities, and work with the city on numerous environmental projects. When you become a member of the Fort Thomas Forest Conservancy you are making a statement that our forests are valuable to our way of life and that they need protection. 

As a member, we encourage you to volunteer for any of our activities or get involved in one of our projects (Earth Day, Model Native Garden, trails, Hubbard Studio and Preserve, conservation easement/management, fundraising, etc.) or you can allow your annual membership dues to work for you.
