On July 22, 2017, KTA held a Code Orange Workday at Little Buffalo State Park. This is a very popular park in Perry County, northwest of Harrisburg, with many miles of excellent trails. Five dedicated volunteers worked on the Fisherman's Trail, which climbs a mountain near two of the Park's well-known attractions, the railroad car and Shoaff's Mill.
Volunteers rebuilt log barricades to stop erosion and built a waterbar to direct the flow of water off the trail. They then rebuilt the footpath and placed gravel on top. The workday was part of a barter arrangement with PA DCNR. KTA was allowed to use the Park's Recreation Hall for its recent Backpacking 101 class in return for the workday.
