A brief description of the IPM plan(s) :

We use no pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizers anywhere on campus. Mowing is our best defense for most weeds. Weeds cannot tolerate mowing of at least once a week. We use vinegar and salt on an area that may be over populated with noxious weeds. Our outlying areas are monitored by us and the county.
