  2. Cord wood cutting:  for older scouts.  Park needs cord wood cut into firewood for park use (maintenance shop, managers house, park campfires).  Never ending work, plenty of hours of skilled and hard work.
  3. Trail maintenance: Red dot trail along the shoreline needs to be re-blazed and marked.  Possibility of placing brush and downed trees by "the rocks" to create a natural barrier.  Several days work:  possible Eagle project.

  5. Pot hole repair and fill: Ball Pond boat launch and Pine Hill parking lot.  Park Ranger delivers and dumps the gravel, scouts shovel and rake.
  6. Pootatuck fire road maintenance.  Good project for older scout to lead.  Fire road (about 5 miles) is cleared, rocks removed, culverts brushed out, etc.  Lots of labor.  Several days work.
  7. Spring time cleaning of park trucks, boats, tractors, mowers, etc., possibly in conjunction with a class involving vehicle maintenance.
