I am leading the project for Greater Baltimore Canoe Club (GBCC) with a ranger from the park. Several weeks ago we installed water bars on the trail at Gunpowder Fall State Park. The work on this Saturday's event will involve grading the trail, installing water diversion dips, and shaping a gabion-stone culvert to carry off the diverted water. The ranger has a machine to do most of the heavy material moving, but final placement of the materials may need to be done by hand. The park provides tools and work gloves, and the GBCC provides refreshment and buys lunch.

I would be happy to collaborate on car-pool arrangements, although it is probably only a half hour drive from Savage Mills, as a reference point.
