Abstract:Presentation about the Safer Pest Control Project's Lawn to Lake project, in collaboration with Lake Champlain Sea Grant, Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant, Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission, Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning, University of Illinois Extension, and the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. The goal of the project was to reduce inputs of pesticides, nutrients, and other pollutants into the Great Lakes basin by promoting and implementing sustainable lawn and landscape practices at the community and household levels. The community-based program offered train the trainer sessions to Master Gardeners and Master Naturalists through university extension programs. The Safer Pest Control Project changed its name to Midwest Pesticide Action Center, which still offers the training.
