Volunteer in Jefferson Memorial Forest December 23
Join up with the Land Steward team this December, and help keep the Jefferson Memorial Forest a beautiful place to visit. Volunteer for one day to get a look at this gorgeous green area, and visit a part of Louisville you may not have seen for a while.
Be a Land Steward Volunteer
Jefferson Memorial Forest is a huge green area for everyone in Louisville to enjoy. Land Steward volunteers help to remove invasive weeds that want to take over the forest, look for areas that need extra protection, gather seeds, plant new seeds and water existing plants. Everyone aged 14 and up is welcome to volunteer in the forest for a few hours. Children under 18 should be accompanied by an adult.
Be in the forest from 9 am to noon to help keep this green space beautiful for everyone in Louisville to enjoy. You’ll find the entrance into Jefferson Memorial Forest at 11311 Mitchell Hill Road in the south of Louisville. Just a short distance away, you’ll find several great neighborhoods near the forest. Two of the largest south Louisville neighborhoods are laid out along Dixie Highway. While you're near the forest, take the time to take a good look at Valley Station and PRP.
Out of the Forest in Pleasure Ridge Park and Valley Station
Both Valley Station and PRP are well-known for large schools and lots of big subdivisions. Dixie Highway is the main hub of both neighborhoods. People drive down Dixie Highway to do their shopping, eating and find fun things to do. The Jefferson Mall is nearby, along with several large strip malls, and a few famous city-wide attractions. This is the part of town where you’ll find the Iroquois Amphitheater, the historic Farnsley-Moremen Landing and a great view of the waterfront at Riverview Park.
You’ll also find lots of homes throughout these communities. The schools and family-friendly places all over Valley Station and PRP make these neighborhoods perfect for families, and the homes are built to match. You’ll find ranches, two-story homes, cozy bungalows and sprawling brick traditional houses. There are older homes with lots of character, newer homes that have barely been lived in, even vacant lots just waiting for someone to build. There’s a little bit of everything in this part of Louisville, and a whole lot of forest and subdivisions to visit.
Have a little mini holiday in Valley Station and PRP this December, and see why the winter season is so bright around this part of Louisville.
