Peavy Arboretum will be closed from 5:00am-12:00pm on Monday, 5/20/2019 for herbicide application in select areas. All road ditches and shoulders within the Arboretum will be sprayed to address weeds and unwanted grasses. Only two trails – Red Cedar Run and Fir Hollow Trails – will be sprayed to control vegetation growing in the trail bed. Spot spraying of invasive weeds will occur throughout the Arboretum to address individual plants.
Signs posted on-site will list the date and time of application, chemical name, and re-entry interval. They will be left in place for one week.
