Ecological Stewardship

The benefits of public greenspaces in an urban environment are many, both for the ecosystem and for the humans that spend time in these places. In April of 2023, Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government (LFUCG) awarded a bid contract to EcoGro for the installation, mulching, watering, installing stem protectors and maintenance of 45 large native trees on 2 sections of a neighborhood greenspace. The Cane Run Greenway was developed when the city purchased and demolished multiple homes with historic flooding problems. A small tributary to Cane Run flows through these parcels along Morgan and Shawnee Avenues.
