© 2019 SAVE THE LAST KC FOREST

Kansas City's Line Creek Forest is roughly 800 acres of old, pristine and contiguous forest (about the size of Central Park) surrounded by urban development, and accessible by 2 miles of the Line Creek Trail. 

There are many reasons to save the forest. Learn more below:

ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY

See what Missouri Department of Conservation, MARC and other experts say about the forest & why it's an important property for conservation.

Tree 3
urban wildlife

Our wild spaces are disappearing, and important species of bats, insects, owls, songbirds and plants are losing valuable habitats.

Community
Benefits

KC spent 2 million dollars to bring community members to the untouched forest. Why ruin the surroundings with development?

History

The Line Creek Forest has a rich history, from the interurban railroad to the archeological artifacts of the ancient Hopewell Culture. 

GREEN SPACE = MONEY. FOR EVERYBODY. 
HERE'S WHY:

It's simple. Forests + green space = money for KC's Northland. Not only do urban forests, parks and green spaces contribute to higher property values, but green space also helps take care of a community: improving air quality, flood management and more.

 

Small swaths of trees aren't enough; we need to protect the large, contiguous green spaces that help our community. 

What else? Green space contributes to the wellbeing of a community, improves quality of life and makes it a more desirable place to be: not just for businesses, but homeowners, renters and everybody.
