Report of Mary Scott Nature Park workday August 7, 2021
On August 7, ten folks helped remove undesirable plants from the planted beds and the woodland of Mary Scott Nature Park. A Boy Scout and his father dug Liriope from along the steps to the creek. Progress was made clearing ivy south along the western boundary. English ivy was removed near the eastern entrance. Brush was removed from the area behind the corn hole game. Ten yard waste bags of organic material were filled and left for Dekalb County to compost.
Black-eyed susans are blooming in the parking oval.
The next scheduled workday will be Saturday, September 4, 2021, 2-4 pm, when we plan to continue removing nonnative plants from the park. Please bring your gardening gloves, soil knife/trowel, and kneeler to help us improve the park for birds, insects, and other wildlife.
