About this Grantee

Using a local apple orchard as their laboratory, Haverford High School students observe the affects of integrated pest management on nonpoint source pollution and disease resistance in plants and insects. Students inspect pheromone traps and track degree days, photograph and draw indigenous insects, and analyze data to control pests and limit pesticide applications. At the conclusion of the project, students create a mural that illustrates how humankind affects the environment.
