Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest Clermont, Kentucky
The Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest is a dynamic 16,000 acre resource located between the Midwest and Southern regions of the United States in the Knobs Region of Kentucky. Already an inspiring story of ecological stewardship and environmental research, the Bernheim Arboretum Master Plan gives physical form to Bernheim’s Strategic Plan. The Strategic Plan identified four ‘Big Ideas’ that challenge the Arboretum to advance and honor the legacy of Isaac W. Bernheim and his original vision that is as relevant and forward-thinking today as it was in 1929. The Master Plan creates a dynamic, immersive, and inspiring guest experience through significant, yet sensitive, interventions. These interventions will be the wellspring driving support, advancing the Arboretum’s mission, and ensuring future success.
