Report of Mary Scott Nature Park Workday May 7, 2022 On May 7,2022, the Friends of Mary Scott Nature Park held a workday at the park. It was a cool, cloudy day, perfect for outside labor. A new worker from Briarlake Forest, a Boy Scout from Troop 77, and his mother helped the Friends’ leader assemble downed branches into a debris pile. They worked in the southeast corner of the park. Two Friends scratched gravel back onto the trailbed of a trail section near the playground that gets washed out during rainstorms. Vinca minor and Microstegium were pulled from the center of the main walking oval. Dwarf coreopsis and both penstemon species are still blooming in the parking oval. The itea shrubs are covered in white flowers. The next scheduled workday will be Saturday, June 4, 2022, 10-12 am, when we plan to continue removing nonnative plants from the park.
