Land Between the Lakes Celebrates Nature Arts Day at Nature Station


Land Between the LakesGolden Pond, KY – Land Between The Lakes (LBL) National Recreation Area celebrates the changing season with Nature Arts Day on Saturday, October 6th, 2012, from 10am-4:00pm.

There will be something for the entire family including activities for children to help them learn about nature through arts and crafts. Bring the family and visit with local artists and craftspeople as they display, demonstrate, and discuss their work. Learn a new art skill from guest nature artists or try making your own nature crafts.

Artists include basket making, boat building, making your own clay pot, found and repurposed bugs, painted rocks, and much more. Sit back and listen to Native American stories or join in during the Critter Sing-along. Arts and crafts will be available for purchase.
