A lot of care goes into ensuring the health and beauty of lawns. But lawn care can contribute to polluted runoff when fertilizers and pesticides are overused or improperly applied, which can pollute our lakes and streams.
The Lawn to Lake program promotes healthy lawn and landscape practices to protect water resources in the Great Lakes region. If you would like to commit to being a part of this effort through your lawn care practices, you can take the Lawn to Lake pledge.
