Report of Mary Scott Nature Park workday April 3, 2021

On a cool, sunny pre-Easter afternoon, 6 GNPS members and Friends of Mary Scott Nature Park worked at the park. We were helped by nine enthusiastic members of the Chamblee High School Beta Club. Twenty-nine yard waste bags of ivy and honeysuckle and Vinca minor were removed from the park. Many perennials and shrubs were blooming: mouse-eared coreopsis, Viburnum obovatum, fothergilla, red buckeye, toothwort, ragwort, Celandine poppies, Trillium cuneatum, violets, columbine, Rhododendron canescens, and green-and-gold. As Susan says, “May apples are looking pretty with green leaves.”

We observed CDC recommendations to wear masks and practice social distancing.

The next scheduled workday will be Saturday, May 1, 2021, 2-4pm, when we plan to continue removing nonnative plants along the southwestern boundary of the park. Please bring your mask, gardening gloves, soil knife/trowel, and kneeler to help.
