One Day Until Maine Pesticide Summit
The organizers at the Toxics Action Center are reporting robust registration for Saturday’s Maine Pesticide Summit at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Brunswick, Maine. More than two-thirds of the available seats had already been claimed as of Thursday afternoon, so pre-registration is highly recommended: http://www.safelawns.org/blog/index.php/2010/11/maine-pesticide-summit-register-here-to-reserve-your-space/.
