Report of Mary Scott Nature Park workday September 4, 2021
On September 4, four Friends of Mary Scott Nature Park and nine Chamblee High School members of the Interact Club joined to remove Japanese stilt grass (Microstegium) from the southern (Briarcliff Road) area. English ivy was pulled along the eastern side of the main loop trail. Brush was removed from the area behind the corn hole game. Twelve yard waste bags of organic material were filled and left for Dekalb County to compost.
Cardinal flowers and goldenrod are blooming in the parking oval.
The next scheduled workday will be Saturday, October 2, 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.
