Pesticide-free park movement grows in the Pacific Northwest

EUGENE, OR — This past Thursday, July 23, members of the Northwest Coalition Neighbors for Alternative to Pesticides (NCAP) and other like-minded people celebrated the grand opening of Rosetta Park here, the latest pesticide-free park in the Pacific Northwest.

The pesticide-free movement continues to gain strength and supporters, especially on parks and public properties in the Pacific Northwest. There are believed to be about 80 pesticide-free parks there.
