Owl at Woodlands Nature Station
As I said in my last post, everything is coming back to life around Kentucky… everything from Genuine Kentucky to trees and the wonderful Land Between the Lakes are filled with hope and are firmly facing better days ahead!
If you’ve read Genuine Kentucky any, you know how in love I have always been with the Land Between the Lakes. I cherish every minute I spend there and downright miss it when I’m away. That’s why I’m kind of tickled that my first “coming back to life!” event we’re posting on the Kentucky blog involves the Land Between the Lakes and one of my favorite places in the world, Woodlands Nature Station.
From The Friends of the Land Between the Lakes:
Spring has sprung at Land Between the Lakes and the Woodlands Nature Station offers plenty of family friendly activities throughout the month of April to celebrate. Special programs include Spring Break activities, guided hiking and kayaking trips, Homeschool Day, and more.
“A Sensational Spring Break” is April 2-10 with themed programs, crafts, games, and hikes. April is also Homeschool Month at the Nature Station with the 8th annual Homeschool Day on April 29. Educators are encouraged to check the online calendar at landbetweenthelakes.us for homeschool programs and activities.
“With blooms of wildflowers dotting Hematite Lake, wildlife becoming more active, and the many programs and activities offered at the Nature Station, the next few weeks present the perfect opportunity to get outside and have fun!” said Interpretive Naturalist Marissa Lindstrom.
