CEEE's environmental health initiatives focus on community practices and state strategies that significantly reduce children's exposure to pesticides and other preventable pollutants. We work with school boards, grounds staff, park managers, child care centers and local champions to significantly reduce pesticide use. We also help Iowans--especially public health professionals--understand that regenerative farming, as practiced by innovative farmers, build soil & water quality, do not rely on pesticides, and solve for a pattern of health.
