Land Between The Lakes will offer veterans, active and retired members of the armed forces, and their families free entrance into the Elk & Bison Prairie (EBP), Woodlands Nature Station (NS), The Homeplace (HP), and the 1pm show (does not include special events) at Golden Pond Planetarium.
Veterans can pick up their free entry passes for the EBP at the Golden Pond Visitor Center (GPVC) on Nov. 11 from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Also on Nov. 11, a one-day free vehicle permit will be issued for Turkey Bay Off-Highway Vehicle Area and a free daily trailer permit at Wranglers Campground.
During the fee waiver day, veterans can also pick up a coupon at NS, HP, or GPVC for a “buy one, get one free” return visit for ages 13 and up. The return visit coupon, which expires May 31, 2011, will be good for a future one-time admission to either NS or HP.
Whether you take a drive through the Elk & Bison Prairie, wander around the backyard at Nature Station, learn about life on the farm in the 1850s at The Homeplace, ride the trails on an ATV at Turkey Bay, or enjoy a trail ride on horseback at Wranglers, fall is a wonderful time to get outdoors and enjoy recreating at Land Between The Lakes!
