insectsIn 1994, NCAT started working with the National Park Service on Integrated Pest Management. Sustainable agriculture staff met with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service IPM coordinators to help them learn how to create IPM plans. NCAT also worked with the National Park Service to incorporate sustainable agriculture practices at parks in Mississippi and Pennsylvania, and along the 500-mile Natchez Trace Parkway.
