Herbicide Applications in Parks

When necessary, the Parks Department treats turf and flowerbed spaces with herbicides to control and inhibit the growth of noxious or invasive weeds when mechanical removal is not feasible.  All treatment activities are regulated per the Adopted Herbicide Policy and Practices.pdf pdf Document.  Any application of herbicide is done by a certified Pesticide Applicator and all precautions are taken to ensure that there is no danger to the public prior to, during, or after applications.

Below is a list of Parks properties that have received treatment, the herbicide(s) used, and the date of application:

Ashley Schacher

When Aquatics Manager, Genessee Dennis, arrived in September, there were no Aquaducks classes because we did not have a teacher.  Ashley was asked if she were interested in working with babies - knowing she was a swimmer.  Ashley willingly obliged and was eager to learn.  She was given the resources for instruction and she developed the curriculum on her own.  She has even taken on private instruction and other swimming lessons.  Ashley is awesome with the kids and their parents.  She is self-motivated and never misses her shifts.  Not everyone is willing or good at working with really young children, so thank you Ashley for all you do at the Astoria Aquatic Center!
