Upcoming Issue, Summer 2014

Kentucky Afield Magazine Summer 2014 CoverIt’s been a century of silence for the passenger pigeon, after the last one died at the Cincinnati Zoo and the species went extinct 100 years ago. Learn more about the causes and the conservation legacy of the bird that once numbered in the billions.

The summer issue also features stories about combat veterans who became conservation officers, tips for fishing small waters, advice for floating the Green River, an update on quail restoration efforts at Peabody Wildlife Management Area and more.

You'll find all this and more in the summer issue of Kentucky Afield magazine.  But you won't find Kentucky Afield on the newsstands - it's only available by subscription.  Order your  subscription today for $10 a year.  You get four issues plus the outdoor calendar in December.
