Weed Wrangle Session #1 at Radnor Lake

This morning, over 60 volunteers came out to Radnor Lake to work with the park staff on removing invasive-exotic plants. These volunteers started at 8am working with Ranger Paul Schauer on South Cove Trail pulling and stump cutting invasive bush honeysuckle.
This is 1 of 3 Weed Wrangle Events being held at Radnor Lake with a second session starting at 1pm- 5pm with Ranger Will Peters on the South Cove Trail. These volunteer efforts are a continuation of our Weed Wrangle efforts over the past three years and resource management focus at the natural area to help ensure native populations of plant life thrive along our park trails.
On Saturday, volunteers will be working with the park staff along our southern boundary removing invasive-exotic plants near endangered plant populations near Vanderbilt Dyer Observatory.
Thank you to all the volunteers who came to assist us at Radnor Lake and special thanks to Friends of Radnor Lake who provided pizza for all of our volunteers and staff! We would like to also thank our partners at Vanderbilt Dyer Observatory working with us to help make this possible.
