Integrated Pest Management Advocate  Steven Zien takes his traveling Our Water Our World (OWOW) show across the waters of our local creeks, streams and rivers to area nurseries via kayak due to the heavy rains. The heavy rains and resulting runoff is a great reminder that we need to practice River-Friendly Landscaping and Gardening because synthetic pesticides and fertilizers easily runoff our landscape and gardens with the rain water where it travels directly without any treatment into our local waterways polluting our recreational and drinking water supplies.
