Pesticides and Toxins
West Marin is a unique environment with an exceptional community working for clean air, pure waters, healthy ecosystems, a diverse and thriving native flora and fauna, and the preservation of a rural, community spirit. Prevention of unnecessary pesticide use is critical for the residents and sensitive ecosystems of West Marin. EAC continues to advocate for limited and responsible pesticide use.
EAC is a petitioner in a lawsuit against the California Department of Food and Agriculture, challenging a statewide pest program that allows spraying over schools, neighborhoods, and organic farms.
EAC is also a proud council member of the West Marin Mosquito Council (WMMC). The WMMC is a community group composed of representatives of our local public utilities and environmental groups focused on the use of pesticides in West Marin.
