A brief description of the IPM plan(s) :

Chemical herbicides and insecticides are not used on campus landscaping. Some chemical biocide applications were permitted in the original establishment of the landscaped vegetation, but use has not been continued since the early years of the college. Any proposals for chemical use in landscaping must be reviewed by the Campus Land Use Committee (CLUC).

Chemical applications in buildings require the approval of Evergreen’s Environmental Health and Safety Coordinator. Evergreen contracts with a state approved pest control contractor who practices Integrated Pest Management.

“In all cases of chemical use, the least toxic method should be employed.” Evergreen Campus Master Plan, Volume 2, page 72.
