Eric’s Project was a multi-part trail renovation at Upton Hill Regional Park in Arlington, which both complemented and supplemented earlier efforts by Adam Smith, Steven Strasburg, and especially Neil Stanga. Some of the efforts including installation of erosion barriers, eradicating a false trail, blazing all the paths in the park, building a new connector trail between two previously disconnected trails, renovating and lining trail, and installing about 2 dozen trail signs. In all, about 120 man-hours of work.
Eric is planning to attend The University of South Carolina, and intends to major in Music.
Thanks to the Board of Review members Brigadier General Ted Bowlds (USAF), Dr. Michael Cassidy, Ruth Netting (District Advancement Chairman), Max Padon (District Eagle Board), and Rita Rooney (Chairman).
And lest we forget, Happy 18th Birthday, Eric!
