This deck will allow Karrington to get out and enjoy nature, as this is his only way for him to do so at home. The deck he had was way too small for him to maneuver on and it is not stable.

Worked with the National Park Service at Stones River National Battlefield to reconstruct an historic fence and remove invasive plant species. The Park Service maintains split-rail fences throughout the battlefield in an effort to recreate the historic appearance of the farmland during the Battle of Stones River.We rebuilt one of these historic fences, which had been previously removed due to structural and safety concerns. A team of adults, scouts, and other volunteers worked in five teams to remove invasive plant species, including Bush Honeysuckle and Chinese Privet. These non-native plants aggressively displace native plants and interfere with natural runoff filtration, which harms the water quality in Stones River and other nearby waterways.
