MNLA Offers Pesticide Safety Clinics

The overall focus of the Pesticide Safety Education Program is to help people use pesticides only when needed, apply pesticides safely, understand and comply with pesticide-related regulations and recognize the potential impacts of pesticide use, including impacts on human health, non-target organisms and the environment.


The Michigan Nursery and Landscape Association is offering pesticide credit clinics starting mid-October and continuing through the beginning of November. The dates and locations of each clinic are as follows:

• October 18 & 19, 2018: Grand Traverse Conservation District, Traverse City, Mich.

• October 22 & 23, 2018: Matthaei Botanical Gardens, Ann Arbor, Mich.

• October 29 & 30, 2018: Diagnostic Center for Plant and Animal Health, East Lansing, Mich.

• November 5, 2018: Wojo's Greenhouse, Ortonville, Mich.

• November 9, 2018: Kalamazoo Valley Community College, Kalamazoo, Mich.

While some of the clinics last only one day, those spanning two days provide additional information.

Each clinic costs $95 for MNLA members and $130 for nonmembers. John Stone, MSU Pesticide Safety and Education Program, leads all of the clinics. Clinics run from 8:15 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day they are held.
