'Dad and the Dandelions' WCTA Member Resource - Final Version

After seeking member feedback, dozens of hours spent fact-checking and five re-writes, the WCTA member resource in response to the CBC broadcast 'Dad and the Dandelions', is now complete.

This final version will be featured in our April/May 2017 Turf Line News Magazine, and is meant to act as a resource for WCTA members if/when responding to questions regarding the use of pesticides at their facilities.  Often a sensitive and divisive issue, our goal was to provide an easy-to-use tool for turf managers to confidently reference as needed.
