Developing School IPM Programs 2001.

This series of workshops (completed in June 2001) was developed by the School IPM Resource Center and was sponsored by the Indiana Department of Environmental Management. These programs for custodial, kitchen, and maintenance staff and provided hands on training in IPM concepts and techniques. Similar Introductory IPM Workshops will be offered again in 2002, along with more advanced training for groundskeepers, kitchen staff, and IPM practitioners.
