Red-Legged Frog Brochure

The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California issued a court order requiring EPA to assess the potential effects of 66 pesticide active ingredients to the California red-legged frog. The Order requires EPA develop this brochure to address various requirements in the court order. EPA is making this brochure available through our website and by direct mail to certain certified applicators in California and certain other parties as directed by the court.
