Radnor Lake State Natural Area Weed Wrangle on March 4th, 2017

Radnor Lake Weed Wrangle March 4th, 2017 by Ranger Will Peters (2)

30 volunteers came to Radnor Lake on March 4th to assist Ranger Will Peters and seasonal staff remove invasive-exotic plants along the South Cove Trail as part of Weed Wrangle on March 4th, 2017.  Volunteers worked to remove the primary invasive-exotic plant found at Radnor Lake (bush honeysuckle) along the ridgetop areas, piling pulled plants into piles for wildlife habitat and future management of this area by the Radnor Lake Ranger Staff.

 

Thank you to all the volunteers who spent their Saturday with us to make this day a huge success and enable us to achieve this important resource management goal for 2017.  Special Thanks to Friends of Radnor Lake for providing bottled water and pizza for our volunteers and staff for our 3rd Weed Wrangle Event at Radnor Lake State Natural Area!

 

To cap off our invasive-exotic plant removal at Radnor Lake and our 2017 Weed Wrangle, Dr. Robert Loeb from Penn State University will be  conducting a “weeds in the woods hike” on April 2nd at 9am at Radnor Lake.

 

The park ranger staff will be working with volunteers throughout the month of March and April on removing invasive-exotic plants.

 

Any groups wishing to organize a work day with the park ranger staff at Radnor Lake, please contact Lyndy Maness at lyndy.maness@tn.gov
