Land Between The Lakes Association realizes that teachers, families and others who enjoy learning at home find it difficult to find materials that are interesting, entertaining, while at the same time educational for use in their learning activities.  This is likely made more difficult during the coronavirus events we are now experiencing.  Our staff is looking for resources and means to support you at this time.

All public events have been canceled until further notice.  In order to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we will not hold any public events until further notice.

The Interpretive staff at the Woodlands Nature Station, the Golden Pond Planetarium and Observatory, as well as the Homeplace Working Farm and Agricultural Museum are studying and working to develop content which can be helpful to each of you.

We will post materials which we feel would be helpful as it is developed and deliverable.

We look forward to seeing each one of your smiling faces again when we can safely get back together and following the health rules necessary to keep you and to keep our staff safe.
