Jr Ranger Intern Program Session 1
Our much anticipated Junior Ranger Intern Program at Radnor Lake kicked off on Monday, June 12th with 13 interns working with the park staff on numerous projects around the natural area. Now in our 15th year of this program, the Jr. Ranger Intern Program creates an opportunity for participants to work with state park rangers on trail projects at Radnor Lake, increase their exposure to environmental education programs and gain an insight into natural resource protection.
This is a labor intensive collaborative effort between the Friends of Radnor Lake, the Radnor Lake Staff, park volunteers and the Jr. Ranger Interns. Most days consisted of hiking a minimum of 3 miles, hauling mulch via wheelbarrow, working on trail projects, environmental education programs by the ranger staff and/or working daily at the Barbara J. Mapp Aviary Education Center. On Friday, June 16th the interns and staff traveled to the Duck River State Natural Area-Yanahli WMA to clean up 5.5 miles of this designated scenic river.
Thank you to Friends of Radnor Lake for funding this program and we are looking forward to Session #2 beginning on July 10th.
