Land Between The Lakes staff would like to take this opportunity to thank all the educators in our area for the time and energy they spend educating their students.

Our teachers are the key to reconnecting children with the great outdoors," said Sharon Waltrip, LBL’s Program Manager for Environmental Education. "We invite teachers to come out and discover all of the environmental and historical education opportunities LBL has to offer."

Be sure to bring a letter printed on your school letterhead, a school faculty ID card, or your home educator identification to present at each site. Educational materials will be available to take home.
