Mary Scott Nature Preserve Restoration Project
These 10.6 acres of central DeKalb county greenspace, acquired in 2003, are a pocket of natural beauty in the midst of lawn-heavy 1960’s suburbia. The old homestead’s woods are battling exotic invasives and, to a lesser extent, historic landscape plants. Public education on the restoration process, including that of a streambank, is a goal for Mary Scott Nature Preserve.
Our regular workday is first Saturday of each month, and in summer months we meet at 10:00. Come to front entrance 4150 Briarcliff Rd.
