Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Tom Gallagher Receives Excellence in IPM Award

Tom Gallagher, Senior Resource Educator of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Albany County, received an Excellence in Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Award from the New York State Integrated Pest Management Program (NYSIPM) at the Winter Green-Up Grazing Conference, in Latham NY.

NYSIPM develops methods of sustainable pest management, and educates stakeholders and the public on how to use these methods to mitigate environmental, health and economic risk. The award honors individuals who facilitate the adoption of IPM in their businesses, schools, communities, and farms, and who develop new tools and tactics for sharing these practices.

“Tom Gallagher is why our program has been totally successful for the safety of our residents and employees of the County of Albany,” said Charles E. Hughes Jr. Senior Code Enforcement Officer.
