Managing the forest and open lands at Land Between The Lakes (LBL) requires the efforts of not only dedicated employees, but a great many partners, contractors, and volunteers who contribute greatly to the successful management of forest resources. Meet the team that works hard to make LBL what it is today!
The Land Between The Lakes Advisory Board was formed, after LBL was transferred to USDA Forest Service, to advise the Secretary of Agriculture on the means of promoting public participation for the land and resource management plan for the Recreation Area, and environmental education.
