His project including installing a retaining wall and a gravel patio, building a fence along the trail and widening the trail. The area was in need of improvement due to a pre-existing erosion issue. "The trail head would get washed out with the slightest rainstorm," said Joe. "So I installed the retaining wall and back filled it with about 500 pounds of gravel. I also elected to install a fence because the surrounding underbrush grows so fact and I knew a fence would keep the trail clearly marked regardless of the growth of the brush as well as making the entire trail aesthetically pleasing." He also installed a gravel patio at a pre-existing landing.
Joe raised all the funds needed for $800 project, developed the project plan, scheduled the work days and handled installation with a few helpers. "Joe Mohr and other Scouts who have selected Chastain Park improvement as their Eagle Scout projects have added long lasting value to our Park, " said Ray Mock, Director of Operations for the Chastain Park Conservancy. "It is a privilege for me to get to know these fine young men who contribute so much to the Park and the community.
