We call upon the Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board to implement a pesticide-free management policy on all park-owned and park-leased properties.
Why is this important?
Whereas scientific studies associate exposure to pesticides with health risks to infants, children, pregnant women, and the elderly;
Whereas pesticides are harmful to pets, wildlife, beneficial insects (including bees, currently at great risk from colony collapse
disorder), and natural ecosystems; and
Whereas, toxic runoff from pesticides and chemical fertilizers pollutes lakes, rivers and drinking water sources:
We, the undersigned, call upon the Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board to enact a policy to entirely eliminate the use of pesticides and synthetic fertilizers on all park-owned and park-leased properties, including
all land and all bodies of water under MPRB control, in order to protect the public and promote a healthy, sustainable environment; and we call upon the Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board to implement a pesticide-free management policy on all park-owned and park-leased properties.
