The Beauty of Floyds Fork


will save the world.

-Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Beauty is life-saving...Augustine described it as "a plank amid the waves of the sea." Beauty quickens. It adrenalizes. It makes the heart beat faster. It makes life more vivid, animated, living, worth living..." 

-Elaine Scarry

Beauty is essential. It comforts. It heals. It restores, revives, and renews. It's why we give flowers in a hospital, or sit by the water's edge and just breathe.

Continue the vision to preserve Floyds Fork 

Louisville Keep Your Fork is a 501(c)3 organization 


Louisville Keep Your Fork is a non-profit that advocates for Floyds Fork, Louisville’s premier wildlife corridor. Our vision is to preserve and protect the beauty, wildlife, and recreation this waterway provides. We seek to influence, inspire, and inform civic leaders, business owners, environmental advocates, and residents. We believe that Floyds Fork is a natural treasure that must be protected. Floyds Fork is the last natural living waterway within Jefferson County and is the habitat for over 40 species of fish, 100s of birds and an astounding number of reptiles, amphibians, mollusks, and mammals. These animals depend on clean water and the natural tree canopy for their very existence. This waterway’s beauty, wildlife, and adventure rivals any state park and worthy of preserving, protecting, and showcasing. 

Louisville Keep Your Fork is NOT opposed to development. The development community plays a critical role within the larger community, taking enormous risks & creating employment opportunities for many people. However, Floyds Fork is a special area which is vulnerable & in need of protection. Louisville Keep Your Fork is focused on highlighting irresponsible developments impacting Louisville's 31 miles of the Floyds Fork DRO waterway.  It is possible to respectfully develop along Floyds Fork, preserving this beautiful area.
