Fred's Facts

Iroquois Park was nicknamed “Louisville’s Yellowstone”. Frederick Law Olmsted’s design took advantage of the rugged terrain and the drama of the mature woodlands and scenic overlooks. At the heart of the park is a 10,000-year-old forest that blankets the knob’s steep hillsides with a great variety of rare plants and animals.

Catholic Heart Work Camp 2013 volunteers repainted a restroom building in Boone Square

Volunteers from Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Texas, and Ohio participating in Catholic Heart Work Camp gave 450 hours of service this week to help remove invasive plants in Shawnee and Tyler Parks, mulch historic trees in Cherokee Park, and paint a restroom building in Boone Square.
Many thanks to the campers and leaders for their help in Louisville’s Frederick Law Olmsted Parks! We had a blast working with “you all” and hope you did too!
