Golden Pond, KY – Land Between The Lakes (LBL) National Recreation Area offers teachers free general admission to several of its day-use facilities during Teacher Appreciation Weekend, Saturday and Sunday, September 21st and 22nd, 2013.
Land Between The Lakes staff would like to take this opportunity to thank all the educators in our area for the time and energy they spend educating their students.“Children are increasingly growing up apart from nature. Our teachers are the key to reconnecting children with the great outdoors,” said Sharon Waltrip, LBL’s Program Manager for Environmental Education. “We invite teachers to come out and discover all of the environmental and historical education opportunities LBL has to offer.”
See the Calendar of Events for program schedules and times http://www.lbl.org/CALGate.asp.
Admission to The Homeplace, Golden Pond Planetarium, and Nature Station is free for current and retired teachers, home educators, and their immediate families on September 21st and 22nd. Be sure to bring a letter printed on your school letterhead, a school faculty ID card, or your home educator identification to present at each site.
