Land Between the Lakes seeks volunteers on Public Lands Day

Officials at Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area are looking for volunteers on National Public Lands Day to help clean up trails.
A statement from Land Between the Lakes says it wants people who are available to work the morning of Sept. 24. Afterward, participants are encouraged to visit the Homeplace 1850s Working Farm. Admission is free in honor of National Public Lands Day.
Emily Cleaver, who is the volunteer coordinator with Friends of Land Between the Lakes, says volunteering is a great way to give back, meet people and help maintain trails. Land Between The Lakes manages more than 170,000 acres in western Kentucky and Tennessee.
Volunteers should bring water and snacks; bug spray, garbage bags, lunch and additional water will be provided.
