The Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses

The Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses will be the subject of a  meeting of the Badger Turf and Grounds Club in on March 18 in room 2301 Microbial Sciences at  7 p.m.

Guest speaker Pete Leuzinger will discuss his experiences working with the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses. This program helps golf courses protect our environment and preserve the natural heritage of the game of golf. By helping people enhance the valuable natural areas and wildlife habitats that golf courses provide, improve efficiency and minimize the potentially harmful impacts of golf course operations, this program serves as a vital resource to golf courses around the world.

The purpose of the event is to help people understand the value of our environment and how to treat it respectfully and responsibly.

As the green movement grows, I think that this would be a great way to meet and discuss our environment and how we should serve as environmental stewards. This event will prove to be very valuable for UW-Madison students and the community. As society moves towards greener alternatives, environmentalism especially on golf courses would be a very interesting subject to investigate and should prove to be a valuable event to the campus and community.

Our speaker is currently a turf professor at a school in the Chicago area. As a former golf course superintendent, he has guided two different courses through the process of Audubon Certification. He will talk about his experience with Audubon International, and he will talk about being a golf course superintendent during tough economic times.
