INSECT AND WEED CONTROL

Various pest and weed control programs run at different times of the year. The following is a schedule used by Parks perations Staff as a guideline April-July Mosquito Control May-Sept Noxious Weed Control, Elm Bark Beetle and Emerald Ash Borer Monitoring, and Invasive Alien Species Trapping May-June Cottony Psyllid Survey and Tree Injections; Forest Tent Caterpillar Inspections and Control une ellow-headed Spruce Sawfly, alse ine Webworm and Western Ash Bark Beetle Survey Late June Verbenone Patches Applied for Mountain Pine Beetle Control uly-Aug utch lm isease and ear Slug Sawfly Survey Sept-Oct Bronze Leaf Disease Survey Oct-Mar Black Knot Disease Survey and Control

DID YOU KNOW…

• Parks Operations monitors and controls the mosquito population within an area of more than 81,280 acres.

THE CITY OF GRANDE PRAIRIE

• Parks Operations treats wasp and hornet nests on public property and, with the assistance of a local bee keeper, honey bee issues. • The spread of the noxious weed species tansy across Grande Prairie has become rampant. This weed has ferny leaves, yellow button flowers and a strong smell. t is to ic, causing internal bleeding when ingested, and is a particular problem throughout the Bear Creek corridor and in wetlands around Grande Prairie. We encourage residents to destroy this weed if they nd it in their yards.

TURF MOWING

arks staff maintains over acres of turf. he following describes levels of service (weather and equipment dependent): • Jubilee Park and Muskoseepi Park - Weekly • Neighbourhood Parks – Every 2 weeks • Utility Lots – Every 4 weeks • Roadside ditches - once per year • Sweeping of excess grass clippings occurs only on high traffic areas, or where clippings may impede turf growth.

TREE PRUNING PROGRAM ENCOURAGES WILDLIFE HABITAT

Starting April 2018, Parks Operations will remove or modify selected dead tree snags located close to asphalt trails in the Muskoseepi Corridor (between 84th and 68th Avenues) and O’Brien Lake. These dead trees have been evaluated for hazard potential by the ity s erti ed Arborists, and will be entirely removed or modi ed to create wildlife habitat. odi cation involves removal of the top section of the tree to mitigate hazards, and retaining a portion of the tree for wildlife habitat. This retained portion is a key to enhancing wildlife diversity in the urban natural forest. Safety of workers and the general public is of the utmost importance. Residents and visitors using the Muskoseepi and O’Brien trail system are asked to watch out for “TREE WORK AHEAD” signs, pylons, and avoid areas that have been sectioned off. or more information on the 2018 Tree Pruning Program visit www.cityofgp.com/trees

2018 PARK IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM

Park Improvement Funding is available to assist community groups with the improvement and upgrade of parks throughout the City. Improvements such as skating rinks, lighting, tree planting and playground equipment upgrades have been approved in the past. All projects must follow the City’s Design and Construction Manual. Submit proposals to Parks Operations outlining the project and community support local residents have for it. 2018 project application deadline is October 1, 2018. Requests after that date will be considered for the following year. Please forward proposals to Mr. Lindsey Juniper, Parks Planner, 9505-112 St. GP T8V 6H8.
