As the highest point in Kentucky, this mountain is home to many rare species of wildflowers including painted trillium, rosy twisted stalk, purple fringed orchid, and Kentucky's largest population of Turk's cap Lilly. In addition, Black Mountain is home to several species of rare birds, mammals, and insects.  Joyce Bender, former director and longtime manager at the Kentucky State Nature Preserve Commission, will be a guest speaker.  Come learn from Joyce why Black Mountain is such a special place.
