School IPM Working Group

Since 2009, representatives from land-grant IPM programs, government, private industry, and nonprofits from 11 northeastern states, have coordinated with other regional school IPM working groups and the national school IPM steering committee to promote School IPM practices. Leveraging EPA grants, they’ve conducted IPM demonstrations, drafted priorities for research, extension, and regulations for the Northeast, contributed to School IPM sessions at International IPM Symposiums and created the Best Management Practices website linked below. Members encourage partnerships with diverse stakeholders focusing on landscape, turf, schools, homes, structures, gardens, urban forests, and public health issues.

In addition to involvement with the EPA grant referenced above, the following funded projects were developed by the Northeast School IPM Working Group.
