Master Naturalist certification in Kentucky?

I'm looking for information about whether the State of Kentucky has a training/certification program for what might be called a Master Naturalist. That's what it's referred to in several other states. I've only been able to find a course at UK for students there, but am wondering if there might be a program for non-students in our community of Lyon County, Kentucky or other areas of the state? Thanks in advance for any assistance you may be able to provide! ~Paul Ramey 270-388-0984 (home)

Elm tree covered with bumble bees

Is slime flux or alcoholic flux possible in this area? I have a tree covered with bumble bees, wasps and flies. I researched and found information that seemed to indicate this might be what is wrong with my tree. Can you give me more information and any remedies? Thanks

Non-invasive flowering fast-growing ground cover for slope?

Hi! As do many people around the lake area in Western Ky, I have a very steep, poor grade soil banks that are filled with large and small natural rocks close to the surface. In my case, my main issue is a very large area in front of the house that is impossible to mow and dangerous to weed-eat, even with cleats. Weeds grow vicariously on it and look terrible, which destroys the curb appeal to the home. It appears that something like Vinca Minor has tried to establish in a small section, but its only visible after the weeds have been cut down and apparently is not strong enough to choke out the crabgrass and other tough grass & weed clumps that are in place. Tilling first is unlikely because of the presence of rocks, so I'm assuming I'll have to plant some starts where I can reach saveful and then seed as densely as possible between, but perhaps there's a better way? I'm looking for a fast-growing groundcover strong enough to choke out grass and weeds to plant on the slope. Ideally, it would flower also to provide a mass carpet of color at least some of the year. We have beautiful dense woods immediately across the street so we want to be careful not to plant anything invasive. What is my best option in this situation? Thank you so much for your service to our community! Kim Derk

Soy wax distributors

I am looking for a soy wax distributor in the Western Kentucky area. I know Golden Brands has a manufacturing facility in Louisville, but I don't believe that facility is open for distribution. Was hoping you would know of some others.
