Egg Harbor uses natural approaches for municipal lawns

Parks, picnic areas and other lawns owned by the Village of Egg Harbor have a few more weeds and insects because the village uses no artificial chemicals for weed and pest control in those areas.  Village Administrator Ryan Heise says Egg Harbor has long favored greener approaches on municipal lands.



Such practices help reduce the risk of algae blooms in the harbor and Green Bay caused by phosphorus-based fertilizers. Heise says Egg Harbor is also committed to promoting native vegetation with help from an expert.


Heise believes Egg Harbor adopted environmental-friendly practices long before it was cool.
