Veterans Memorial WMA is owned by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife. The property has a variety of important habitat types for game species and declining migratory birds, reptiles and amphibians, including hardwood forests, shrublands, grasslands, and pond. KDFWR used 3.25 million from KY’s Wetlands and Streams Mitigation fund that is managed by the USCOE, USFWS, and US EPA, and KY Division of Water. The dept added $3 million in federal grant money specifically designated for fish and wildlife land acquisition. No state tax revenues or Fish and Game Fund dollars were used.
