That's how much material was used last month to remediate a badly eroded section of the Manly Dam trail (8 tonnes of crushed sandstone and another 2 tonnes of flagging).
A small group of volunteers joined Trailcare for the first volunteer maintenance day at Manly Dam in more than 2yrs
The 3rd Saturday of each month is the new recurring date for volunteer maintenance at the Dam
Northern Beaches council and the rangers at the dam are supporting our sport by supplying material and hand tools for each of these days

Saw this today - it's hard to work out but might affect the golf course ST?
