Common Pesticides: What are we using in the garden?

The Coastal Discovery Museum will host this program on November 25 at 2 p.m. Debbi Albanese is a SC Master Naturalist and recent graduate of Georgia Southern University with a MS in Biology. The research for her thesis showed unexpected negative effects of herbicides on butterflies and earthworms. In this presentation, she will review some commonly used pesticides, how pesticides are approved by the EPA for use by homeowners and introduce the idea of integrated pest management.

The cost for the program is $7 per person and reservations are required by calling 843-689-6767 ext. 223. The museum is located at 70 Honey Horn Drive on Hilton Head island. coastaldiscovery.org.
