2010: The Year in Review

It's hard to believe that 2010 is almost at a close. We've had a great year with many IPM activities including:
  • Four coalition meetings. Highlights include attendance at the Nebraska Urban Pest Management Conference, Mark Shour speaking about Iowa School IPM, and Tom Green's presentation on IPM Star Certification.

  • IPM In-services for Omaha and Lincoln Public Schools food service staff, cafeteria managers, custodians, and IAQ liaisons.

  • Demonstration visits at OPS (3) and LPS (2)

  • Hosting the North Central Region Pesticide Safety Education and Certification Workshop and North Central IPM Working Group in Nebraska City.

  • IPM Youth Programs at the Earth Wellness Festival, Natural Resource District Nature Nights, and 4-H in Aurora and Central City

  • Healthy Tribal Communities IPM presentations
Thanks to everyone who was involved in these projects!

I'll be heading on Christmas break after today, so look for my next blog, which will feature the IPM projects planned for 2011, in early January.

In the meantime, enjoy this story about Chocolate Cockroaches, and Happy Holidays!
