Groups of volunteers, as well as individuals, maintain over 75  miles of trails. During our National Public Lands Day and Shoreline Cleanup events volunteers remove over a ton of trash from Land Between The Lakes; almost 60% of which is recycled.

Friends of Land Between The Lakes’ volunteers work in the Elk & Bison Prairie to monitor the condition of the elk and bison, but also to educate and inform the visitors so they will have a safe, fun and educational experience.
