Report of Mary Scott Nature Park workday October 5, 2019
On October 5, 2019, seven Friends of Mary Scott Nature Park worked at the park removing nonnative flora from the southwest corner of the park. There are five yard waste bags filled with the likes of chamberbitter, bamboo resprouts, Microstegium, English ivy, Japanese honeysuckle awaiting collection and composting by DeKalb County Sanitation. There are two brush piles left on site for birds and invertebrates to utilize for cover during the cold months.
Among the flowers in bloom are Georgia savory, bluemist. Magenta beautyberry fruit is making a fine show.
The next scheduled workday will be Saturday, November 2, 2019, 2-4 when we plan to continue removing nonnative plants. Please bring your gardening gloves, soil knife/trowel, and kneeler to help.
