Report of Mary Scott Nature Park workday November 7, 2020
On a cool November 7 afternoon, seven neighbors and GNPS members worked at Mary Scott Nature Park. Ivy was pulled off trees toward the northern part of the park. Mountain mint from the parking oval was moved across the driveway. The ditch planting was weeded. Some wild geraniums and dwarf crested irises were planted in the parking oval and in the ditch. Some ivy was pulled, and buried garbage was removed. Much remains both of the buried garbage and the ivy to be pulled.
The hawthorn tree in the parking oval is sporting its red berries while its foliage is still green, making a striking sight. The Georgia asters are in bloom. The clump of muhly grass is showing its pink plumes.
The next scheduled workday will be Saturday, December 5, 2020, 2-4pm, when we plan to continue removing nonnative plants. Please bring your gardening gloves, soil knife/trowel, and kneeler to help.
