Led his team by building a handicapped accessible ramp leading to the main building of Pennsylvania Environmental Education Center (PEEC), Dingmans’ Ferry, PA. He designed the ramp independently, in compliance with the standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The outcome of his project now allows for easier access for visitors of all abilities to explore PEEC’s main building attractions, including the new ECOZone. A granite sign was also installed, at a later date, in order to explain that the construction was a result of an Eagle Service project. The sign was stained to match the building.

Led his team by remodeling an old cross landscape at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, Dingman’s Ferry. He refurbished one cross and built two additional crosses to create a three cross landscape. The crosses were 12’ high , for the two flanking crosses and 16 ‘ for the middle cross, and all three were anchored in cement. The approximate dimension of the whole area where the crosses were placed was 30 feet by 8 feet. The landscape was made in the shape of an oval with top soil laid out, then mulch spread over. Flowers and shrubs were then planted in and around the area.
