The rebuilding of Paul’s Path platform, a 32 feet long platform on the Winterhawk West (runs from horse camp to Kilbourne) bridle trail, Alum Creek State Park.

Completed platform

IGS Energy Volunteer crew

Our Delaware Chapter partnered with IGS Energy employees for their annual volunteer day. Nine IGS employees chose our Alum Creek bridle trail project. The first phase involved the complete tear down and removal of the old platform, moving the waste lumber to the road where it was then loaded into an Alum Creek Park service dump truck. The IGS volunteers carried 9-4 x 6 x 16′ support beams, 65-2 x 6 x 6′ top boards and 6-2 x 4 x 12′ side boards to the work site plus all the tools and 25-80 pound bags of concrete mix. Due to the propensity for flooding in the this area, 12 concrete slabs were created for the support beams to rest upon and secured with rebar. Our chapter is grateful and most appreciative for the help from this awesome team of volunteers from IGS Energy. We look forward to a continued partnership on a project next year!
