Project Details

In coordination with Radnor Lake State Natural Area park leadership, university students conduct vegetative and historic research studies at Radnor. Ongoing partnerships with Henderson State University, with committed leadership from Dr. Doug Heffington, and with Dr. Robert Loeb and his students from Penn State University, expand the reach of park staff in identifying and documenting plant species and historic elements that exist on the 1,400+ acres of Radnor Lake State Natural Area.

Week-long research studies completed by students from these universities are co-led by their faculty leaders and Radnor Lake State Natural Area staff. These groups focus on the identification of elements of note on newly acquired properties and in areas of the park where development is planned.
