Report of Mary Scott Nature Park workday June 6, 2020
On a hot June afternoon, 7 neighbors and GNPS members worked at Mary Scott Nature Park.
Stokes asters, purple coneflowers, sundrops were blooming.
Six yard waste bags were filled with E. ivy, potato vine, Vinca minor, J. honeysuckle, J. chaff flower. Columbine and spurge seeds were dispersed.
In an effort to prevent erosion of the steep bank going to Mary Scott Creek, brush was again piled on the social path. A neighborhood child created signage telling folks to use the existing trails.
The last identified Bradford pear was cut down! Bradford pears have been being removed for at least the past five years. Now we must be vigilant about pulling the seedlings.
The next scheduled workday will be Saturday, July 11, 2020, 10-12am, when we plan to continue removing nonnative plants. Please bring your gardening gloves, soil knife/trowel, and kneeler to help. Please note this is the second Saturday since July 4th is a holiday.
