Dedicated into the preserve system on Dec. 8, 2004, management of this site is shared between the Livingston County Fiscal Court, the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources (KDFWR) and the commission. The Livingston County Fiscal Court agreed to dedicate the 169-acre property that is part of a larger tract they own along Sugarcamp Creek and Newman’s Bluff. The tract protects Price’s potato bean (Apios priceana), a federally threatened species, as well as habitat along the forested slope of Newman’s Bluff and the creek. The area is open for hiking, nature study and wildlife-related recreation, including hunting and fishing in accordance with regulations established by KDFWR.
