Report of Mary Scott Nature Park workday August 3, 2019

On August 3, 2019, three Friends of Mary Scott Nature Park worked at the park over the August third weekend. There are four yard waste bags filled with the likes of kudzu, crabgrass, mulberry weed, Korean clover, Asian dayflower, chamberbitter, buttonweed, Asian ladies’ thumb, Microstegium awaiting collection and composting by DeKalb County Sanitation. Two yard waste bags of Japanese chaff flower were left at the west entrance.

The DeKalb County Parks Department has paved the entry and parking area with asphalt. An ACA ramp from the parking area to the paved sidewalk was installed.

Two fencing stakes were added to the edge of the parking planting area to discourage vehicle runover of the plants.

Among the flowers in bloom are Georgia savory, bluemist, purple coneflower, butterfly weed, and beautyberry. Bees of various varieties were working the mountain mint flowers.

The next scheduled workday will be Saturday, September 7, 2019, 2-4 when we plan to continue removing nonnative plants. Please bring your gardening gloves, soil knife/trowel, and kneeler to help.
