The MGG Lawn & Land Forum is a collaboration between MGG and the Illinois Sports Turf Managers Association and supported by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources to document, summarize and improve the state of Integrated Pest Management and Natural Lawn Care policies and practices locally, regionally and nationally. All summaries, findings, and resources developed from this forum will remain free and open source to turf managers, policymakers and individuals interested in applying IPM policies and programs to their work.

The Forum has a new resource! The MGG Lawn & Land Forum Toolkit. The Forum designed this resource to equip sports and recreational field managers with simple, but detailed, steps to limit synthetic pesticides and fertilizers on highly trafficked fields.

Ecological restoration often first considers competitive and hardy native plants to control invasives and other weeds. In this webinar, the Forum invites two ecological restoration professionals to share their plant selection strategies used along shore and coastal lines. Our two panelists will, also, cover how to establish native plants with as limited herbicides as possible.
