On May 31st, 2008 scouts and adults of Troop 202 assisted Robert Amy in his Eagle project to refurbish a 60-foot section of the Cinderella trail in Joaquin Miller Park in Oakland. The project involved digging, widening, and levelling the trail. Materials were brought down the trail in wheelbarrows and by hand. Afterwards the flat rocks were laid as the base and then filled in with sand and dirt. In addition, several water bars were put in to prevent erosion.
