The public is invited to a free presentation, “Safe Lawns & Safe Beaches,” on Monday, March 20 at the Wisconsin Maritime Museum, 75 Maritime Drive, Manitowoc, from 6 to 8 p.m.

Jacksonport resident Pat Fitzgerald initiated the working group Safe Lawns in Door County to create awareness about the environmental health risks posed by traditional lawn care practices and present viable landscape options to enhance lawn habitat health for people, pets, and air and water quality. He will identify health risks from synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, explore best practices alternatives including organic lawns, use of native plants and yardscapes, and recommend resources to assist participants in improving the health of their yard, neighborhood, and community.
