SCCR is proud to promote a program by NCAP – Northwest Center for Alternatives to Pesticides: Central Puget Sound Water Stewards.
This community campaign is focused on improving the health of our watersheds and keeping chemical pesticides from entering Puget Sound, by engaging community members on alternative yard care practices. We want you to talk with your neighbors and friends about using less pesticides in their yards! This campaign includes community organizations, cities, counties, watershed management organizations and watershed districts. More information in the post.
Please share: pregnant women, babies and young children are the most sensitive to toxic chemicals for home, lawn and yard care. So are pets, domestic animals and wild life. Pesticides drift in air and water contaminating entire watersheds and neighborhoods.
We encourage you to use alternative methods for healthier family, community, ecosystem and watershed.
Please share: Spring is here! For your yard, garden and home, it is best to use alternative and eco-friendly methods and products. Look at the labels and check ingredients. So that you, your family, community, and watershed are more healthy.
Please share: Starting July 19, 2021 DNR Northwest Region is spraying public lands in the watersheds of Snohomish, Skagit and Whatcom Counties with commercial products that have Glyphosate and Imazapyr for site preparation before replanting clearcuts. Toxics are regulated by corrupted EPA and WA State Department of Agriculture.
Only focused grassroots civic engagement and action can save our watersheds from consistent toxic contamination and destruction.
