Isaac Wolfe BernheimIsaac Wolfe Bernheim understood the enduring value of connecting people with nature. It was vision that led him to purchase over 12,000 acres of eroded and logged-out land in Bullitt and Nelson Counties in Kentucky in 1929. He established the I.W. Bernheim Foundation in 1929 as a means of protecting and managing this living legacy. He understood that land, if properly cared for, had the inherent capacity to recover. His gift of land would become a place where all people could find peace, understanding and common interest in nature, regardless of race, creed or economic status.
