The nonprofit group Friends of Land Between the Lakes is donating photos from their annual nature photography contest to the Murray State Biology building. Executive Director of Friends of Land Between the Lakes John Rufli said the donation symbolizes a long standing friendship between the university and Land Between the Lakes, but it also serves as a way to remind students about what the national recreation area has to offer.
“To make people in Murray and particularly on the campus more aware of what’s here in Land Between the Lakes and encouraging even more participation here both as a leisure/recreation activity and for academic opportunities.” Rufli said.
A dedication ceremony Tuesday includes an update on improvements to Golden Pond Planetarium. The ceremony begins at 4 in the biology building and is open to the public.
