The March Program will focus on the current use of pesticides in Monterey County and the threat this use poses to public health, especially children’s health. Because of the agricultural nature of our county, most of the information will pertain to agricultural pesticides and their use near public schools. Beginning with an overview of what regulations and programs exist at the state and county level regarding pesticide use near schools, we will explore the role Monterey Bay community members have had in shaping these policies. In conclusion, we will look at what the coming year might bring in terms of advocacy around control of pesticides in our community.
SPG meets on the second Wednesday of each month at the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History, on Central Ave. between Grand & Forest, 7 to 8:30 p.m.
See SPG's website and facebook for details of each month's program.
Programs are free and open to the public. Members receive e-mail notices of these and other selected community events.
