Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area (LBL) offers multiple uses and multiple resources. While visiting, you may see various management activities in progress. Some areas are maintained as open lands using prescribed fire. In other areas you may see trees being planted, thinned, or harvested. LBL provides diverse habitats for the plant and animal communities of our area. Some tree species for instance, require full sunlight to germinate and grow. Resource management is guided by our Land & Resource Management Plan created in 2004. The subject headings near the bottom of this page have information on various management programs and projects. The first link will take you to our Land & Resource Management Plan. The second link will take you to the specific projects from that plan.
