Report of Mary Scott Nature Park workday November 05, 2016

Eight GNPS members and park neighbors met at the Mary Scott Nature Park to remove exotic pest plants, like privet, Vinca minor, chaff flower, English ivy, Nandina, and Japanese holly. We filled ten yard waste bags with invasive plant material to be composted by the county. Most of us worked along the West Overlook entry to the main loop trail. Others pulled English ivy along the main trail and near the intersection with the East Overlook entry.

A Boy Scout project has added two much welcomed benches, which are currently placed along the main trail.

Your hours worked at MSNP are applicable toward your Certificate of Native Plants volunteer hours requirement. We will be delighted to answer questions and offer encouragement to all who volunteer. Does your school club require volunteer hours for membership? If so, get the workdays at Mary Scott Nature Park approved for your volunteer hours.

The next scheduled workday will be Saturday, December 03, 2016, 1:00-3:00 pm when we plan to continue removing nonnative invasive plants near the Overlook East entry. We are hoping for rain this winter so we can replant some of the cleared area.
