Walking tour planned at Land Between The Lakes

GOLDEN POND, Ky. (AP) – Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area is conducting a walking tour of the Pisgah Bay Project Area this week.

The tour is open to the public and begins at 8 a.m. CDT Thursday at the North Welcome Station. Visitors should wear walking shoes and bring their own snacks, water, tick repellant and sunscreen.

Vehicles will caravan from the welcome station to tour areas.

Land Between The Lakes says the project involves integrating ecology, education, recreation, wildlife, heritage and forest management to restore the oak-hickory and shortleaf pine tree stands native to the area. Plans also include removing invasive species.
