The falcons have flown the coop!
The next exciting falcon season begins spring 2023. We are thrilled to have had a successful nesting season this year and look forward to next. Thank you for joining us!
This year, the Mill Creek nesting box produced two chicks. Additionally, nest boxes around the company at Ghent, Trimble County, and E.W. Brown produced 8 chicks, which were all banded and fledged in May.
Our nest box initiative provides peregrine falcons safe nesting opportunities at several of our generating stations, which has allowed this population to continue to increase and is just another innovative way we're protecting our state's natural resources through our long-standing partnership with Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. Our employees ensure the nest boxes on company property provide a safe setting for the falcons to prosper.
Partnership and dedication
In May 2022, employees at Mill Creek Generating Station met with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources (KDFWR) and Kentucky Afield to highlight the peregrine falcon nest box and the ongoing partnership and dedication of employees at many company facilities for the last 20 years.
The Kentucky Afield segment was recorded on-site and captured the banding of two chicks at Mill Creek, as well as discussions from employees of LG&E and KU and KDWFR about the ongoing partnership, success of the program and the initiative's part in the company's larger commitment to sustainability.
