Steering Committee for
Lawns & Environment
The Steering Committee for Lawns & Environment
is a consortium of organizations including
EPA, NIFA, the Audubon Society, and others
providing information to the public for their
use in making informed choices to reduce
pesticide use and practice more environmentally
sustainable programs to maintain their lawns.
As an active, invited member of the committee,

advice and recommendations on policy documents.

Master Gardener specialist in each state.
Additionally, NIFA participates in planning
the National Lawns and the Environment Conference,
most recently held March 15-17, 2004, in
San Antonio, TX. We bring the state extension
faculty into the planning, editing, and early
implementation stages of this project to
foster their participation. Other members
of the steering committee, besides NIFA,
include representatives of:
