- Coordinating a three-year, multi-disciplinary, multi-state, integrated project that will apply environmental and behavioral research results to Cooperative Extension efforts to reduce the application of excess nutrients (i.e. fertilizer) on lawns by homeowners in targeted, urbanizing neighborhoods throughout New England with the ultimate goal of protecting surface and groundwater quality.
- Plans to work with other colleagues in New England to develop an outreach campaign that will help reduce the amount of nitrogen leaving residential properties and entering local water bodies where it can contribute to algal blooms.
- Founding outreach campaign in social science research that investigates residential lawn care practices (a potential source of nitrogen) and environmental research that investigates the minimum amount of nitrogen required to produce acceptable residential turf.
- Outreach Scholar's Final Project
