The Preserve at Shaker Village conserves and shares native prairies, woodlands, watersheds, fields, canebrakes and diverse wildlife—all perfectly framed by miles of hand-laid rock walls.

Each year, thousands of visitors hike, run and ride on nearly 40 miles of recreational trails that weave through The Preserve. Maintaining this trail system is not only important for ensuring a quality visitor experience, but also for protecting a diverse and sometimes delicate ecosystem.

We need your help to care for our trails!

If you are not adverse to a little hard work in the outdoors, join us as we battle erosion, clear invasive species and protect one of Central Kentucky’s most popular outdoor spaces!

From April through October, for three hours on select Saturdays, the Shaker Village Preserve Team will lead volunteer trail crews to help maintain the Village’s trails.

Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age. Volunteers will use hand tools including shovels and loppers, and should wear leather work gloves and sturdy, closed-toe shoes or work boots.
