Our Vision

We imagine a Kentucky where the air is clean, the water safe,
and nature and natural resources are safeguarded and not abused.

We Believe

  • Every Kentuckian has a right to clean air, clean water, and land free of pollution
  • Nature and natural resources should be protected from abuse
  • A healthy environment is essential for a sound economy
  • We are all stewards of our world, accountable to each other and to our children’s children, and all future generations, for the choices we make
  • Environmental and energy decisions and policies should be informed by humility, justice, and prudence
  • Public resources should not be taken for private gain or wasted

The Kentucky Resources Council is a 501(c)(3) organization founded in 1984 and directed since 1985 by Tom FitzGerald.
