Dedicated Aug. 12, 1992, this preserve is a 51-acre area containing one of the six most important maternity caves known in Kentucky. The site protects a maternity colony of approximately 13,000 gray myotis (Myotis grisescens), one of three federally endangered bats found in Kentucky. The preserve includes a section of the wooded stream corridor and uplands surrounding the cave, which has been surveyed and mapped for a distance of approximately 6,200 feet. The acquisition of Goodrum Cave represents the KNP's first purchase of a cave for the protection of an endangered bat species.
