Spring Fling 2016

On Monday, May 9th, 2016 Midwest Pesticide Action Center invites you to celebrate spring and our work protecting people and the environment at the Revolution Brewery. Monica Buckley from Red Stem Native Landscapes will give a presentation on native plants for your lawn and garden while guests enjoy the comfy environs of Revolution Brewpub's Brewers' Lounge, hors d'ouevres from Revolution's kitchen, the chance to sample five (5!) house brewed beers, and a raffle of fabulous prizes from Greenwise Organic Lawn Care, Logic Lawn Care, and Crafty Beaver. There's also an opportunity to tour the brewery! Help us celebrate all the hard work of our partners and activists without whose passion and elbow grease could never enable our programs such as our new Midwest Grows Green campaign to grow and achieve great success. Metered street parking can be found outside of the brewpub. The Brewers' Lounge is easily accessible by public transit via the CTA Blue Line - California stop or via the Fullerton, California and Milwaukee buses. For over 20 years, Midwest Pesticide Action Center has been working at the local, state, and regional levels to protect people and the environment from the dangers of pesticides through advocacy, education, and outreach. Midwest Pesticide Action Center creates innovative programs that enable municipalities, low-income housing communities, park and school districts, childcare providers, landscapers, and homeowners to reduce indoor and outdoor pesticide use.
