​Frances Johnson Palk State Nature Preserve was dedicated on July 9, 2002 and is located in Pulaski County. Discovered in 1998 by KNP biologists, this preserve contains a series of acid seep communities that can rarely be seen in Kentucky. These small wetlands are formed by seeps found at the heads of several small streams. Although much of the preserve is dominated by upland forest, over 70 species of plants occur within the bogs, several of which are considered rare and endangered. This preserve was acquired with a generous contribution from East Kentucky Power Cooperative, Inc.

Access is by written permission for research only.
