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 were treated with herbicides (Crossbow & Killzall) on 8/15/2017:

Erin has been with the Astoria Parks and Recreation Department for 9 years – and she is one of the most approachable, kind, hardworking, accountable, and passionate individual that we have the honor of working with. In 2011, Erin became the Recreation Coordinator of  Lil’ Sprouts Academy, which she has nurtured to become a widely sought after child care and preschool program. She manages an unbelievably talented team, and has developed fantastic relationships with our Sprouts families.

Most notably, Erin recently spearheaded a campaign to declare “The Week of the Young Child” in Astoria, which celebrated preschool age children, their families, and highlighted the importance of early childhood education. Everyday she proves herself to be an asset to not just our department, but to our community.
