On Friday (Sept. 6) Island View Park was treated with herbicide in the lower field – this is step 2 in the site preparation for pollinator habitat planting. The entire 20 acres will be planted to a native prairie mix that is rich in pollinator benefiting plants. Planting is in partnership with the Sherburne Soil & Water Conservation District and is scheduled for spring 2020.
This week, spot treatment of state listed noxious weeds is scheduled for Bridgeview Park.
No herbicide has or will be applied to trails – park users are clear to continue walking on the trails with no risk of exposure. This will mark the last scheduled treatment for 2019.
