FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Reissued license plates sponsoring the Kentucky Heritage Land Conservation Fund will be available starting next week.
The Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet says the fund is reissuing plates depicting a bobcat on a rhododendron branch, a viceroy butterfly perched on a goldenrod stem and a cardinal landing on a Kentucky coffee tree branch.
It costs $10 extra to purchase one of the plates. The cabinet says the fee is used to purchase natural lands such as state parks, wildlife management areas and nature preserves. Funds raised from the plates have helped buy more than 77,000 acres in 62 counties since 1995.
The plates will be available Monday.
