Ways to Participate

There are many opportunities to participate and promote safe pesticide use. 

  • Download the logo and use it with your February pesticide safety education efforts.
  • Publicize the month using the trifold brochure or flyer. Click on the desired version and print ‘two-sided/flip on short edge’, or post the flyer on your website. Fold the trifold twice, so the logo is on the front and the orange panel is on the back.

This Web Page

This web page contains basic principles of safe use, educational links, a toolbox of ideas for participants, a quiz to test your knowledge of safe use, self-assessment questions to see how your own safe use practices stack up at work and at home, activity ideas, etc.
