HCA Volunteers at Radnor Lake
On Wednesday March 30, volunteers from HCA came to Radnor Lake to work with our park staff cleaning areas of the watershed. This included picking up trash-debris from Radnor Lake, thru the wetlands in the lagoon area and up Otter Creek to the natural area boundary. This was also our first clean up using our new reusable trash bags from Barrel Bag, funded by Friends of Radnor Lake. These new reusable litter clean up bags were registered by Ranger Will Brazill and will enable us to more accurately track the amount of trash collected, sorted and recycled per bag as part of our Tennessee State Parks Go Green Efforts. This helps us reduce the amount of plastics used with these reusable mesh bags while also reducing operation cost of purchasing additional plastic bags for clean ups.
Wetlands Cleanup totals:
20 barrel bags
54 pounds of glass
10 pounds of aluminum/plastic
73 pounds of miscellaneous metal
86 pounds of trash
Thank you to all our volunteers who hiked and helped us clean the watershed at Radnor Lake. Special thanks to Friends of Radnor Lake for funding-supporting our watershed clean up efforts and our volunteer program at Radnor Lake!
