Beyond Pesticides National Conference

  • University of Southern Maine 96 Falmouth Street Portland, ME, 04103 United States

The 34th National Forum provides an opportunity for grassroots advocates, scientists, and policy makers to share our efforts and build local, state and national strategies for strength and growth. This year’s conference will focus on the adoption of policies to protect human health and the environment, and organic land and building management strategies.

The conference runs from the afternoon of April 15 through the evening of April 16, bringing together top scientists, policy makers, and public health and environmental advocates to interact and strategize on solutions that are protective of health and the environment. Beyond Pesticides is collaborating with local groups, including the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA), Toxics Action Center, and Protect South Portland, as well as other local environmental and human health advocacy organizations.
