Notification of herbicide application for the control of invasive plants in Ward 1

By May 24, 2024Parks, Ward 1

This  is to notify you of upcoming herbicide application to control an invasive plant, Lily-of-the-Valley, beginning May 27th, 2024 at Cawthra Park.

Contractors working on behalf of the City, Credit Valley Conservation Authority, will apply VisionMax (Glyphosate) directly to the plants using a handheld/backpack sprayer to minimize impacts to plants in the surrounding area. Notification signs will be posted at all access points to the spray area at least 24 hours prior to treatment and will be removed no less than 48 hours after treatment. Treatment should be completed within 1 week, but the timelines may be extended as needed depending on weather conditions.

This work supports the City’s Invasive Species Management Program and improves the health of natural areas across the City.
