Report of Mary Scott Nature Park workday March 6, 2021
On a blustery early March afternoon, 9 GNPS members and Friends of Mary Scott Nature Park worked at the park. The 2021 objective of ivy removal from the western entrance to Briarcliff was worked on. Ten yard waste bags of ivy and honeysuckle were removed from the park. Another Itea virginica was removed from the parking oval to the retention pond area. Some of the perennials in the parking oval were deadheaded; chickweed was removed. Mouse eared coreopsis, blue eyed grass, and sundrops were planted along the western path behind the ballfield of Shallowford Church.
We observed CDC recommendations to wear masks and practice social distancing.
The next scheduled workday will be Saturday, April 3, 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.
