Fifty entering students plusfour upperclassmen leaders from the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, Honor’s College, conducted one of their annual outreach projects at Perry Lakes Park. Dr. Fran Oneal, UofA, Randy Mecredy (Director of UofA Natural History Museum), and Dr. Thomas Wilson, Judson College Biologist and Park Environmental Advisor, were faculty leaders in the work adventure.
Randy Mecredy was leader in the log jam removal project by the Judson College bridge. This “log team” worked hard for two days and cleared over 15 trees from Park trails. One rotten tree held a beautiful and uncommon Blue Racer snake that slide quickly between the workers legs.
|This is the bench repair team. They mowed trails, repaired benches, and cut brush and briers out of the trails. The park is looking good… nice, clean and comfortable benches await visitors.|
