The Payoffs of a Pesticide-Free Yard

April 24 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us for an eye-opening discussion about pesticides commonly used on lawns and gardens and their negative impacts on human health, our environment, and biodiversity. Our speaker, Louise Washer, a co-founder of Pollinator Pathway will discuss effective alternatives to pesticides and the importance of adopting sustainable practices to protect our air, water, and soil, and thereby promote biodiversity.  She will also cover the need to update state policy around pesticide restrictions, specific pesticide legislation currently being debated in the CT Legislature, and what you can do to help make Connecticut a leader on this issue.

Louise Washer serves on the board of  Pollinator Pathway, which is now in over 350 communities across 19 states. She also serves as president of the Norwalk River Watershed Association, as a member of the Norwalk Mayor’s Water Quality Committee, and on the steering committee of the Hudson-to-Housatonic Regional Conservation Partnership (H2H).
