Benton County Natural Areas & Parks Department plans to close Jackson-Frazier Wetland Boardwalk on Monday (6/17/19) from 7:30 AM-12:00 PM for a contractor to complete herbicide application on dense stands of invasive Reed Canary Grass. Reducing the spread of this weed is a high priority component of the long-term restoration work that is occurring at Jackson-Frazier Wetland.                                       Public reentry times to the boardwalk will be posted onsite, along with the details on the herbicide application that was completed.                                                                                                                                            Please contact ADAM STEBBINS AT (541) 766-6085 with any questions OR CONCERNS.
