Vanderbilt Volunteers—Phi Sigma Pi at Radnor Lake State Natural Area (November 1st, 2014)
On Saturday, November 1st volunteers from Vanderbilt University came to Radnor Lake State Natural Area to work on invasive-exotic plant removal with the park staff. Students from Phi Sigma Pi worked on a newly acquired parcel of land to remove invasive-exotic plants such as bush honey suckle, privet and tree of heaven.
Invasive-exotic plant removal is one of the top management priorities at Radnor Lake State Natural Area as we are targeting over 90+ acres for removal of these plants in 2014-2015 thanks to a Forestry Stewardship Grant, funds from Friends of Radnor Lake and matching funds from the Iris Fund License Plate with the help of Middle Tennessee Regional Interpreter John Froeschauer.
Phi Sigma Pi is a National Honor Fraternity based on the ideals of Scholarship, Leadership, Fellowship, and Service. They participate in many activities throughout the year, including volunteer work. They have volunteered with Radnor Lake in the past, and we always appreciate them coming back to help us on these resource management projects. Thank you Vanderbilt University and Phi Sigma Pi for your continued support of Radnor Lake!
