VP Report - Trailtober!

VP Report - Trailtober!

Boy Scouts Build Bridges in North Park

This summer  Eric Goodman, age 16 of Wexford, organized and completed a project for PTAG to re-route an eroded wet section of the Rainbow Trail (red with blue dot) on the North Ridge area of North Park. Two awesome bridges were built. This resulted in improved flow and no mud.
