Informational tours, regional information about the Green River. This 100 acre area is an excellent example of sandstone glades and barrens in western Kentucky. The large sandstone exposures on upper slopes have mats of lichens and mosses.

Green River Bioreserve - Located in south central Kentucky, the Green River Bioreserve includes sections of Adair, Barren, Edmonson, Green, Hart, Larue, Metcalfe, Russell, and Taylor counties. The study area is located from Green River Lake Dam downstream to the Nolin River in Mammoth Cave National Park.
In addition to its extensive mussel population, the Green is also home to 151 fish species. The mineral dissolution of the watershed's underlying lime- stone bedrock makes the Green River a natural companion to nearby Mammoth Cave, the world's largest known underground cave system.
The Green's quiet waters flow through eight counties, making their way past guarded inlets and rural fields.
