Our Parks staff has been engaged for many months with experts from Cornell Cooperative Extension and New York State Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to review our grounds and fields maintenance practices with a view to reducing even further the Town’s minimal use of non-organic pesticides.
The new Integrated Pest Management program recommended by our Parks Foreman, Jessica Neal, accomplishes this goal. She proposed it in a report to the public on March 7, 2019. You can see her slide presentation and get the facts about the Town’s grounds and field’s maintenance practices by clicking the link below:
