Eagle Scout Donation
Catonsville Rails To Trails has partnered with many teens in the Catonsville area to create trails and trail amenities as part of the Boy Scout’s Eagle Scout projects. Young woman have also worked on the trail to receive Girl Scout’s highest honor, The Gold Award. Approximately 12 teens have completed projects since 1996. CRTT hopes to publish a complete list on this site.
In 1991, Aaron Tomarchio of Boy Scout Troop 456, organized the effort to clear and pave the #9 Trolley Line for a bike/hike trail as part of his very successful Eagle Scout project. In 1996, 14 year old Clark LeCompte, painted the much loved #8 Catonsville Junction/streetcar mural as his Eagle Scout project. Other scouts have cleared new trails along the Short Line, labeled trees, created gardens and installed interpretative signs along the trail.
2013 – Eagle Scout candidate, Joshua Wood, presented his plans for a kiosk on the Short Line Trail at Maiden Choice Lane near Garden Ridge Road. The kiosk will provide an enclosed bulletin board for posting maps, notices and special events. Joshua will clear the area of brush and construct a 6′ kiosk. Joshua needs over $2,000 to complete his project. Help him out by giving a generous donation!
