    I just received an email from LBL requesting input. Here’s a link to their new engagement platform.

    See email below.

    Dear Valued Stakeholder,

    We are passionate about connecting people to the outdoors through outstanding and innovative recreation and environmental education opportunities at Land Between the Lakes. More than ever we believe sustainability is integral to this pursuit. That is why we are developing a Strategic Sustainability Plan to move us Forward to the Future with three goals in mind:

    1) Develop a citizen-informed, sustainability-based vision that will guide our
    recreation and environmental education programs for the next 10-15 years;
    2) Develop sustainability strategies which will position us to be environmentally,
    socially and economically supportable in the long term; and

    3) Align our practices with broader initiatives that cultivate regional sustainability
    through collaborative actions.

    We need your participation to ensure that this plan reflects the diverse needs and preferences of our local communities, stakeholders, volunteers, partners, and visitors. Your participation is critical for us to understand the complex physical, ecological and social threads that link Land Between the Lakes to surrounding lands and communities.

    We hope that you can take time out of your busy schedule to share your thoughts, experiences and ideas. We invite you to participate at your convenience from home by visiting our online engagement platform at, or by attending one of the public open houses listed below to talk directly with other community members, stakeholders, and Land Between the Lakes staff.

    You can bet Heartwood will be there in force to advocate for no timber harvest and reduced food plots and farming

    Heartwood and their like-minded allies will do more than just be at the meetings. They engage the Forest Service and work on these issues every day. Its what they do. Us hunters are one-night, part timers on these issues. The enviros do this for a living.
