The Nature Station

The Nature Station is the “backyard” of Land Between The Lakes, featuring up-close encounters with the plants and animals that claim the region as their home.  Expert interpreters are always on-hand to provide visitors with a truly unique nature destination.

From its indoor discovery center to the live wildlife featured in its Backyard area, the Nature Station offers a wide variety of experiences.  Visitors can experience the outdoors at their own leisure or can join a guided hiking or canoe excursion, with trips embarking from the Nature Station throughout the spring, summer, and fall.

The animals featured in the Nature Station's Backyard could not survive in the wild because of either injury, being orphaned, or having lost their natural fear of humans, but that does not make them any less spectacular to behold.

Visitors will be able to spot everything from Great Horned Owls to Fallow Deer to Bald Eagles.  The Backyard is also home to the Red Wolf, an extremely endangered species that is part of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service's captive breeding program.

The season for the Nature Station runs from March 1 to November 30.  It is open from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Wednesday-Sunday in March and November and daily April-October.  The price of admission is $5 for ages 13 and up; $3 for ages 5-12; and free for ages 4 and under.  Pre-scheduled group rates are available by calling (270) 924-2020.
