Earth Day Weekend 2018 at Radnor Lake
On Friday, April 20th over 45 volunteers came to the natural area to work with the park ranger staff for two volunteer opportunities. Volunteers worked from 8am-5pm assisting the ranger staff in mulching the spillway trail via wheelbarrows. Thank you to all of our volunteers who came out to work with us during these two sessions and for helping us maintain our trails for our park visitors! Special thanks to Friends of Radnor Lake for providing lunch (pizza from Papa Johns) for our volunteers and park staff.
On Saturday, April 21st we had a very busy day at the natural area due to the 70 degree weather with the park ranger staff directing traffic most of the day. Our highlight of the day was the Barbara J. Mapp Aviary Education Center which was opened 1pm-sunset. Numerous park visitors hiked to the aviary center to experience our captive wildlife displays ranging from our venomous snake display to the captive turtle display and our birds of prey programming opportunities!
This coming Saturday, April 28th we will be offering two interpretive programming opportunities:
1. Ranger Matthew Bowling will be leading a birding hike at 7am on Saturday morning. Registration is required. For more information on that hike please visit the following: http://radnorblogs.wpengine.com/hiking-with-birds-april-28th/
