Bernheim Arboretum And Research Forest
Isaac Wolfe BernheimIsaac Wolfe Bernheim understood the enduring value of connecting people with nature. It was vision that led him to purchase over 12,000 acres of eroded and logged-out land in Bullitt and Nelson Counties in Kentucky in 1929. He established the I.W. Bernheim Foundation in 1929 as a means of protecting and managing this living legacy. He understood that land, if properly cared for, had the inherent capacity to recover. His gift of land would become a place where all people could find peace, understanding and common interest in nature, regardless of race, creed or economic status.
