A man who spent three years living in a treehouse that he built in Red River Gorge and then started a treehouse village is being featured on nationwide  TV.

 

 Django  Kroner and The Canopy Crew are in  a pilot for a new TV show on the channel Animal Planet.

Just about six months ago, Cincinnati native Django Kroner gave us a tour of the beginnings of a treehouse village he’s building on private property in Red River Gorge .

East Central Kentucky’s Red River Gorge is a popular destination for rock climbing, hiking and other outdoor activities. A Cincinnati man is now offering nature loving visitors there an experience that’s off the grid and off the ground.

At age 19, Django Kroner moved to Red River Gorge, known for its natural stone arches and sandstone cliffs. He went to pursue rock climbing and ended up building and living in a treehouse 45 feet off the canopy floor for three years.
