Wellesley’s Natural Resources Commission (NRC) is asking residents to educate themselves about their lawn care practices, and encouraging everyone to eliminate pesticides, herbicides, and synthetic fertilizers from their yards.


Click here to watch a video produced by Wellesley Media and the Town Communications & Project Manager highlighting the Town’s ongoing efforts to protect the environment and public health from the dangers of toxic chemicals.

The NRC has also contacted our state legislators asking their support of House Bill 776 – An Act empowering towns and cities to protect residents and the environment from harmful pesticides. Read the letter here and encourage your senators and representatives to support this legislation.
