October Volunteer Day at Radnor Lake
On October 23rd, 2020 Radnor Lake hosted it’s monthly volunteer trail day (2pm-6pm). Seven volunteers took time out of their Friday afternoon to assist us with a new trail project at Radnor Lake known as the Lake Trail Bridges Project. Five Motlow College Environmental Science Students attended our work day to assist the park staff clearing large tree trunks and branches from the site of a new trail and bridges at Radnor Lake State Natural Area. The focus of our work day was to prepare the area for construction of the three new ADA accessible bridges which is scheduled to start by Baron Construction before November 1st.
We would like to thank the following volunteers who came to work with us for this volunteer trail day! Joanna Harwood, Nancy Straley, Motlow Students Chyna Thomas, Silvia Pineda Flores, Kameron Marvin, Jennifer Orejel, Hailey Moseley, and Professor Kevin C. Fitch. This new trail when completed will reroute the Lake Trail allowing for wetland expansion on the East side of the lake which will include improving habitat for species like Beaver, waterfowl, cavity nesting birds and River Otters.
Special thanks to Friends of Radnor Lake for funding bottle water, gloves and other supplies for our volunteer trail day!
