SCIENCE IN THE PARK

Lifelong Learning 

Reforestation

Replanting native trees and woody shrubs is a critical step in environmental stewardship.  The canopy of plant life has long-term benefits on the air, soil, and water; it creates a home for animals and a natural, urban escape for us

Invasive Species Removal

Invasive species are plants or animals that have been artificially introduced into a different habitat that often cause environmental damage. Many invasive species are brought to other habitats by humans, where they inadvertently harm the environment. Some examples of invasive species inside Mountain Way Common are Kudzu, English Ivy, and Chinese Privet

Water Quality

Water quality describes the state of a natural water system, and this encompasses chemical (ex. dissolved oxygen, water acidity), physical (ex. water flow, water clarity), and biological characteristics (ex. prevalence of macro-invertebrates, E. coli counts). High water quality is optimal for Little Nancy Creek, which is in the Upper Chattahoochee River Watershed. Our watershed encompasses rivers and streams that ultimately flow into the Chattahoochee River.
