We did this in the golf course industry many years ago. Below is a link to a fact sheet from Audubon International. We started working with them at least twenty or so years ago, but had already formed partnerships with other groups many years ago. Some of the more radical environmental groups never came around to even try and understand why golf, when properly managed, and the environment could get along and thrive. For example, my old mentor (and boss) learned in the 1940's when he was the forestry officer during the construction of the Marine Base at Camp Lejeune, that cutting wide fire lands in the forest created estuaries for all types of birds. If you have ever been to Pinehurst, NC, you will notice that the vast majority of Red-cockaded Woodpecker (protected species) nests are along the fairways of the area golf courses. There are more pesticides, fungicides, and herbicides that are labeled for home use than golf courses.

Terry ..... that's a great place isn't it?  Of course, if you are playing Course #2, hitting the green on your 2nd shot is no guarantee that your ball will still be on the green when you get to it!

I have lived, worked, and played in the John Day area of Oregon. Believe me, that area is beyond redneck to the right. Many in that county supported the Bundy takeover of the Malheur US Wildlife refuge in the next county south. The John Day Sheriff was vocally in opposition to the Feds. If loggers and environmentalists can meet common ground in John Day, then it can happen anywhere.

Re:Pay wall.   The NYT typically allowa 5 or 10 free reads a month.  If you haven't used them, I don't know why it showed up.  You may have to register, but that's free.
