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 the program, 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 of the program is $7 per person and reservations are required by calling 843-689-6767 ext 223 or www.coastaldiscovery.org/calendar. The museum is located at 70 Honey Horn Drive on Hilton Head Island.
