The grant assists schools in covering costs for transportation, facility admission fees, program costs, and dorm rental during the 2014-2015 school year. Grant amounts awarded depend on school matching funds, number of students, and number of planned programs.

Land Between The Lakes programs support the Kentucky and Tennessee States’ K-12 curriculum guidelines for science, arts and humanities, and social studies.

“Our programs offer students a hands-on experience to connect with nature,” said Richard Lomax, Environmental Education Specialist. “A field trip to Land Between The Lakes helps students gain a better understanding of science and history in an outdoor classroom. We make learning fun! It’s an experience they’ll always remember.”
