NORTHWEST CENTER FOR ALTERNATIVES TO PESTICIDES
For 32 years, NCAP has combined community outreach, education, advocacy and organizing to protect the health of people and the environment by advancing alternatives to pesticides. Rural residents and reforestation workers concerned about herbicide spraying in Northwest forests formed the group in 1977.
NCAP has a variety of programs benefiting rural and urban communities throughout the Northwest. NCAP is urging better protections to keep pesticides out of water; establishing safe, pesticide-free places for kids to live, learn and play; strengthening sustainable agriculture and rural economies; and educating people about using alternatives to pesticides in and around their homes.
