FEN Thanks Signature Collectors

     FEN owes a great debt of gratitude to the more than 250 volunteers who helped collect signatures for the Pesticide Free Forests campaign on election day last November. While we still have a ways to go to get the number of signatures required to get the initiative onto the ballot, the effort of these collectors got us off to a good start. Their dedicated help is also a good indication of the great level of support that exists around the state for reform of our pesticide policy and use. We hope that the energy they exhibited in getting us off to a good start will carry us through to success with collection of the remaining signatures.
