We just completed our service project, FourCorps 2010, in the Ocala National Forest. We had 128 members from S-4 attend. Daytime temperature was about 95-97 degrees with a heat index of 105-110. The Arrowmen were definitely hard core about giving service to the projects. Here's a list of what we accomplished in five days:

 Constructed 80 kestrel nesting boxes.

 Poured 37 concrete pads to install bear-proof food storage boxes at the Lake Dorr Campground.

 Poured 45 concrete pads to install bear-proof food storage boxes at the Clearwater Lake Campground.

 Installed 5 picnic tables at the River Forest Group Campground

 Anchored 12 picnic tables at the Silver Glen Springs Recreation Area.

 Built a campfire ring consisting of a 5 ft wide x 25 ft long sidewalk leading to a 20 ft diameter concrete ring. The fire ring is a 4 ft diameter with a brick inlay. The pad is painted with a compass rose.

 Moved and graded 18 cu yards of fill dirt at the River Forest Group Campground.

 Planted two Centennial live oaks with granite monuments to recognize the 100th anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America and the FourCorps 2010 project at the River Forest Group Campground.

 Donated materials to construct two forest portal signs to be installed along CR42.

 Replaced a 500 ft long protective fence at an archaeological site using 200 long-leaf pines that were thinned from the forest.

 Planted 260 native plants at the Juniper Wayside restoring the natural scenic integrity of the site.

 Planted 5100 native plants at 13 sites along 10 miles of power line right-of-way blocking illegal motor vehicle access roads.

 Restored 8 acres of wetlands using maiden cane.

 Removed 48, 60-gallon garbage bags full of non-native invasive species from two intensely infested sites.

 Constructed and painted, four bear-proof storage boxes at the FWC Conservation Camp at Lake Eaton.

 Painted and performed maintenance on structures at the FWC Conservation Camp.

 Performed trail maintenance along 9 miles of the Florida Trail.

 Removed truckloads of garbage and illegal dumping.

 Project resulted in 4500 hours of volunteer service and donated approximately $6000 in materials to the projects.
