Making dramatic changes in the landscapes around you. As not all locations are possible to use larger earth-movers, it will initially focus on methods that allow an individual or group to work largely by hand to affect change on their environments.

Sand
Seek out a location where trail maintenance is required and obtain permission to work.
Dry-stack a small retaining wall.
Trail maintenance for 200 ft of trail.
Eliminate a pothole or puddle.
Add a small, simple switchback trail to a berm or steep hillside.
Sealed pond test.
Create each of the following manual earthworks tools:
  Bunyip water level
  Triangle level
Using the bunyip water level, create an elevation map of a small property.

How about gravel-paving? Could be parking, play space, picnic spots

Filling large holes/gullies so they can be turned into useable space

Creating drainage ditches for run-off

Erosion control measures
