Land Between The Lakes Association Receives National Award

lblgreeen 300GOLDEN POND, Ky. (4/26/13) – Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area (LBL) would like to congratulate Land Between The Lakes Association (LBLA, Friends of LBL) on receiving their 2012 “Partners in Excellence Award.” The Association employs the interpreters and educators that work at The Homeplace, Woodlands Nature Station, and Golden Pond Planetarium.
 
LBLA employees plan and present interpretive programs daily, special events monthly, and group programs for school, homeschool, and other groups. 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. Information about becoming a Friends of LBL supporter or volunteer can be found at www.friendsoflbl.org.
 
“We appreciate that folks at LBL nominated us for this award,” said John Rufli, Director of LBLA. “Our staff works hard to support this diverse National Recreation Area.”
 
“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.”
