GOLDEN POND, Ky. (6/18/13) – Land Between The Lakes (LBL) National Recreation Area would like to welcome Tina Tilley as the new Area Supervisor. She replaces Bill Lisowsky who retired at the end of 2012.
Tilley comes to LBL with a wealth of experience in the National Forest System.

Tilley will administer more than 170,000 acres at Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area. This demonstration area combines resource management, environmental education, and outdoor recreation to benefit the entire region of western Kentucky and Tennessee.
“I am excited to become part of such a unique place within the Forest Service,” says the 26-year Forest Service veteran. “My goal is to build relationships and partnerships with the people in the community, so we can work together and continue to improve the management of the area’s resources.”
