Wildlife-Friendly Golf Courses

What is best part? This simple program really works. I have had amazing wildlife encounters on golf courses, and I run a nature center! I have seen osprey, various hawks, coyotes, mink and even nesting Eastern Kingbirds, all on suburban golf courses.

As a naturalist, I have truly enjoyed working with courses in the metro-Minneapolis/St. Paul area (testing water, designing brochures, completing wildlife surveys, etc.) and would encourage you and your staff to join in the fun. If you are a naturalist or other park employee, I invite you to get involved in this great program and help bring about more habitat conservation in your area.
