About Land Between the Lakes

Applying the mantra "explore and learn," Land Between the Lakes (LBL) is an environmental education center that hosts groups of all sizes and ages, mostly for overnight stays. Located in rural Kentucky, the center features a 700-acre bison and elk prairie, and numerous hiking trails and programs at woodlands stations. LBL also boasts a planetarium and a historical farm, as well as several outdoor activities.

LBL interns and apprentices work in the following departments: recreation, environmental education, forestry, wildlife, history, graphic design, photography, public relations, environmental engineering and health and safety. While most interns work in the organization's administrative offices, some work on site at campgrounds, nature  centers and resident group camps. Others work on a "living history" farm that dates back to 1850.


Internship program: open to all college juniors and seniors. Apprentice program: open to all recent college graduates who are not currently enrolled in school.
