Together, these educators reach more than 118,000 people. LBLA also employs the Volunteer Coordinator for Land Between The Lakes. In 2012, volunteers contributed more than 109,000 hours (equivalent of 52 full-time employees) collecting trash, improving trails, working on heritage restoration projects, and working at campgrounds.

“Land Between The Lakes Association is a true partner. They help provide high quality interpretation, environmental education, and dedicated volunteers,” stated Bill Lorenz, Acting Area Supervisor for LBL. “Because of their efforts and accomplishments, we are successful in providing the American public with the services we have been charged to provide. We feel LBLA employees truly deserve this Forest Service recognition for a job well done in 2012! We look forward to many more years of continued success.”
