The increase in aerial spraying of herbicides for forestry management runs contrary to state policy – but it’s on the rise. Join us as Senate President Troy Jackson, MOFGA deputy director Heather Spalding, and citizens from the North Woods discuss banning the aerial spraying of glyphosate and other synthetic herbicides in paper company plantations, and how we can encourage a shift toward more ecologically friendly forestry practices.

Banning aerial spraying is a priority of Maine’s Environmental Priorities Coalition! Learn more about the EPC’s 2021 agenda here, and stay tuned for upcoming Lunch & Learns on other priority bills.
