The Conservation Committee is a small but mighty group of members working on projects to improve our community and our world, often in conjunction with the Ladue Garden Club. Join us at our next meeting by contacting Nancy Ylvisaker.
The majority of land in the United States is owned by private citizens like us and together we can make a real difference. Studies have shown that even very small amounts of pesticides, fertilizers and pharmaceuticals in our water can adversely impact human health. Taking the pledge is an important and simple step to a cleaner safer water supply.
The Healthy Yard Pledge
“I pledge to take care of my yard without synthetic pesticides, weed killers and fertilizers except on rare occasions to resolve an infestation or to improve habitat for native plants and wildlife. I also pledge not to throw pharmaceuticals or chemicals down my drains or toilets.”
