Report of Mary Scott Nature Park workday March 04, 2017
On a sunny early March day, eleven GNPS members and park neighbors met at the Mary Scott Nature Park to groom the plantings made in January and February. We weeded the front parking lot bed and tucked pine straw and wood chips around the newly planted shrubs. The exotic pest plants that were removed from the park included hawksbeard, dandelion, chickweed, Chinese holly, Nandina, English ivy, Japanese honeysuckle, privet, and the like. The privet was pulled using the Polar Puller donated by GNPS.
The next scheduled workday will be Saturday, April 01, 2017, 1:00-3:00 pm when we plan to remove English ivy and assorted weeds. We will be removing Japanese holly bushes using the weed puller donated by GNPS. We will remove all jetbead shrubs, Rhototypos scandens.
