Past Conferences

Beyond Pesticides' National Pesticide Forum brings together top national scientists with local and national activists and concerned citizens to share information on the issues local communities are facing, craft solutions and catalyze networks to manifest positive health and environmental policy and change. The conference focuses on these ranging from organic food systems, pollinator protection, community activism, and ecosystem science—incorporating national and regional issues.
