Kentucky's newest nature preserve will open this week.
Thomas Dupree Sr. helped finance the preserve, which is run by the nonprofit Nature Conservancy.
The 83-year-old Dupree told the paper he fell in love with Kentucky's natural landscape as an Eagle Scout growing up in Harlan.
Dupree was at the preserve for a preview tour last week when an inaugural group of fourth-graders showed up.
Dupree said he hopes the children who come to the preserve get a deep feeling that it belongs to them — a feeling of natural wealth.
