LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Students in an environmental program sponsored by The Nature Conservancy are working on conservation projects in Kentucky.

The students are part of Leaders in Environmental Action for the Future, or LEAF. Many of the students have never spent extended time out in nature. During the program, which runs through July 31, they are studying tree nursery maintenance, urban forestry, urban agriculture, trail maintenance and water quality monitoring.

Next week, the students will work alongside Louisville Grows’ Advocacy in Action employees and the Shawnee Boys and Girls Club to maintain a community garden.

They will also be heading to western Kentucky to maintain trails, install blue bird houses and collect data at Davis Bend Nature Preserve, located on the Green River, and at Mammoth Cave National Park.
