Beechwood Landscape Lends a Helping Hand

Steve Chepurny and Tim Worrel received an email from James E. Musser asking for help toward his Eagle Project, reconstructing a parking lot at the entrance of the Eagle Walk Nature Trail located in downtown Vincentown NJ.(just off Church Road) by the creek. Beechwood agreed to donate 1,000 S.f. of Landscape Fabric and the Re-bar needed to secure the railroad tie border, and shortly there after the project was underway.

Dear Mr. Chepurny and Mr. Worrell,

I want to thank you for your donation of the rebar and landscape fabric for use in my Eagle Scout Project. You were a big help and that help let me complete my project. The materials were used for rebuilding the Eagle Walk Nature Trail parking lot. The Eagle Walk is a local Southampton nature trail.

The parking lot was just dirt with weeds and debris all over it. The ground was soft a cars would get stuck in it too. It also had a wood perimeter that was buried, not secured to the ground, and slanted. What I did for my project was to clean the surface and level out the parking lot and laid down the landscape fabric that you donated. After all of the fabric was laid down we began to put crushed gravel down and spread it out until it was level. We spread 36 tons of gravel. After we put down the gravel we fixed the perimeter by straightening all of the wood. Then we drilled holes in the wood and stuck the rebar that you donated through to hold the wood in place.

I had a total of 24 people out to help me with my project. We spent a total of 96 hours working on my project.

Thank you again for all your help. I have attached some photos of the work being done.

Sincerely,

James E. Musser III
