Teacher Appreciation Weekend at LBL September 17-18

September 15, 2016 | LBL press release

Teachers will receive free general admission to the Homeplace 1850s Working Farm and Living History Museum, Golden Pond Planetarium, and Woodlands Nature Station on Saturday and Sunday, September 17 and 18, at Land Between the Lakes.

Current and retired teachers, home educators, and their immediate families qualify for free entry. A letter printed on school letterhead, a school faculty ID card, or home educator identification should be presented at each site.

"We support area educators and all they do for their students," says Sharon Waltrip, Environmental Education Program Manager. "We invite teachers and their families to visit our day-use facilities, see what we have to offer, and pick up an educator resource packet. Our environmental education programs encourage critical thinking and hands-on learning about nature, history, and space."

Remember, 4th graders can earn a free pass to federal lands through www.everykidinapark.gov. The 4th grader and their family will get free admission to the Homeplace 1850s Farm and Woodlands Nature Station. Print the paper pass and redeem it for a durable plastic pass at either facility. The pass is valid through August 31, 2017.

In June these beautiful lily pads are in full bloom at Honker Lake in Land Between The Lakes. Honker Lake is a great place for wildlife viewing and hiking.
