Liam’s project was to repair the pathways in the south section of Brookdale Park, where soil had been eroded along the edges of the paced trails. The erosion had created steep drop-offs and concern about injury to park goers who might have accidentally stepped off the trail. To remedy the situation and prevent further erosion, Liam led a team of scouts and other volunteers to fill the gullies with rocks, gravel, and sand, allowing stormwater runoff to run through the material rather than eroding it and making the paths safer for pedestrians.
