Let Lawns Lie: A discussion on Lawn Care and Water Quality
Spring has sprung, which means that many people are looking at their yard envisioning a summer with a lush green yard of grass and considering using pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers to accomplish their goal. Did you know that these yard chemicals are actually very harmful to the environment when used incorrectly? Join Lauren McGrath, Director of the Watershed Protection Program at Willistown Conservation Trust and member of the DCVA Board, to learn more about the impact of pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers on stream health and discuss alternatives to chemical yard treatment.
