Things to Know Before You Mow

Posted Mon, 23 Apr 2018 14:07:00 -0700

While it may seem rather innocuous sitting in the corner of your garage, a lawn mower is a potentially dangerous piece of equipment that many of us use regularly during the summer. Over 20,000 injuries occur annually from the use of a mower, largely caused by flying debris, and many can be avoided by making some simple preparations before you mow.

Don't Feed the "Bears" at U of I

Posted Mon, 16 Apr 2018 08:00:00 -0700

We're all familiar with the warnings against feeding animals in our state and national parks. While we don't typically find bears on the Moscow campus, the same constraints apply to the feeding of other animals. Faculty, staff and students are guided by U of I policy (APM 40.22) which notes "Feeding of natural and feral wildlife is prohibited because of ongoing safety and health issues, vermin population increases around campus buildings, and damage to landscape plant materials from increased and non-sustainable animal populations." Read more on the I-Safety webpage.
