Write Up:
What a beautiful day! Sunny skies, warm weather, and a lot of hard-working volunteers made this an awesome and an all-around productive day! Though we missed the opening ceremonies, we were there until everyone had left!

14 MOCers came and rejuvenated the Carderock Pavilion area of the C&O Canal National Park. Different projects - ranging from stump chiseling, horseshoe pit rebuliding, and the main event: trail maintenance for the beginning of the Billy Goat Trail - were completed and everyone still had energy to do more! In 3.5 hours, we were able to complete most of the work (those stumps were just insane to break apart!, and we ran out of fill soil!)

The National Park Service staff and C&O Canal Trust supplied a majority of the tools and materials. All they had to do was tell us what to do and they were amazed at the amount of work that we finished!
