Beargrass Thunder

Beargrass Thunder is a group hosted by Louisville natives Jody Dahmer, Richard Stottman, and Dr. Mariah Corso. We publish a variety of content such as videos, articles, and blog posts on Louisville & Kentucky-centric topics such as nature, wildlife, biodiversity, art, culture,  folklore, technology, infrastructure, and more!


We delve into different perspectives and viewpoints and how these topics relate to Kentucky and surrounding areas. We promote art and take action to improve our local environment and ecosystems! We just want to make our community a better place by being here.

What is a "Beargrass Thunder"!?

Brainstorming the entire premise on the long drive home from Burkesville Kentucky, we came up with the name "Beargrass Thunder". It works as a combination between "Beargrass" - as in Beargrass Creek running through Jefferson County, and "Thunder" - as in the annual Thunder Over Louisville fireworks festival. 

Who are we?  We are #TeamBeargrassThunder!
