The California Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) is conducting public webinars to collect input on the design and development of a statewide system to provide notification in advance of pesticide applications. 
 
WHEN:
• Tuesday, November 2, 2021, from 9-11:30 a.m. in English -- with Spanish translation available
• Wednesday, November 3, 2021, from 5:30-8 p.m. in Spanish -- with English translation available 
 
ACCESS:
The webinars will be held virtually on Zoom. For information on how to join the webinars, visit DPR’s website here: https://www.cdpr.ca.gov/docs/pesticide_notification_network/  
 
BACKGROUND: 
DPR is creating a tool that aims to provide transparent and equitable access to information in advance of pesticide applications occurring near where people live, work or play. That information will give the public a chance to make their own decisions about any additional precautions they may want to take to protect their health.
 
DPR, in partnership with County Agricultural Commissioners, is in the initial development phase of the statewide system and is incorporating critical input from community members, farmers and other stakeholders. DPR is launching a process for broad participation across California to collect input from the public to help inform the structure and design of the tool.
