The MGG Lawn & Land Forum is a collaboration supported by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources and North Central IPM Center to document, summarize and improve the state of natural lawn care and sustainable landscaping 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.
