Improving the Environment Here at Home
Tuesday, March 13, 6pm North Suburban Library 6340 North Second Avenue Loves Park, Illinois

Since the 1960's, The League of Women Voters of Greater Rockford has worked to protect Northern Illinois's natural resources. In this time of deregulation of Federal Environmental Protection Agency regulations, what can we, as individuals and as a community, do to improve the environment right here at home? Can reducing the amount of materials entering the waste stream by recycling delay or eliminate the need for increasing future landfill space? Although planting a lawn of "No Mow" grass almost eliminates the need for pesticides, fertilizers and watering, is it a potential cause of neighborhood discord? Is it possible to find provider of "green" electricity that also offers financial incentives to the consumer? Please join the members of the Environmental Issues Committee for what promises to be an informative and interesting discussion.

Free event-Improving the Environment Right Here at Home. Tuesday, March 13 at 6pm at North Suburban Library, Loves Park.
