1912 Community Center (Moscow, Idaho)
Carly Lilly presented "Pesticides in the Community". Her talk was about pesticide-use in Moscow and the effects it has on our workers, children and pets. Other towns have done away with pesticide usage in its parks . . . and Moscow can do the same. She also discussed how pesticides work, how labels don't list most of the chemicals and how devastating they can be.
