Over the Fourth of July weekend, the International Moose Convention was held in Nashville drawing nearly 7,500 members from across North America to discuss, among other topics, their philanthropic efforts in supporting children, seniors and the communities in which members live.

As part of the convention, the Moose organized nearly 600 volunteers to work with eight local charitable and community based efforts in and around Nashville, including Radnor Lake Natural Area.  On July 6th, 57 men and women donated their time on a Monday afternoon to help with installing 2″ gravel with wheelbarrows on the Lake Trail at Radnor Lake State Natural Area with the Park Ranger Staff and the Jr. Ranger Interns.

The Moose prides itself on being the “Heart of the Community” and annually contributes more than $75 million worth of community service efforts in the form of financial contributions, volunteers hours worked and miles driven.  As leaders of the fraternity, the men and women who volunteered in Nashville hoped to set a positive example for all the local lodges, chapters and communities that support the Moose around the country.

Radnor Lake would like to thank these International Moose Convention Volunteers for working with us during their visit to Nashville …..thank you for your time!

Special thanks to Friends of Radnor Lake for providing bottled water, gloves and lunch for all of these volunteers!
