YORK — A class for anyone interested in taking the Private (Pesticide) Applicator License Exam will be held March 24, from 8 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. at the York County Extension Office, 120 N. Congress St., in York.

This includes farms, ranches, greenhouses, nurseries and forests but not ornamental landscapes, lawns or vegetable gardens for personal use.
