Bird Houses and the Audubon

Ryan Vrooman, Assistant Superintendent, has taken on the daunting task to get Arrowhead Golf Club certified as a Audubon Cooperative Sanuatary Golf Course.  Arrowhead has been a member of the Audubon Internaitonal for the past few years but never ceritfied.  Audubon International's mission:
To work with others to deliver high-quality environmental education and to facilitate the sustainable management of land, water, wildlife, and other natural resources in all places people live, work, and play.
Arrowhead's Turf Care Department strives to be stewards of the environement.  One step is to promote wildlife and habitat management.  Pictured above, Ryan is cleaning out and sanitizing all the bird house we have on property.  This step is done every winter to enhance our bird population. We are building new house which will be spead out throughout the property to attract more Bluebirds.  Some other bird's that you will see on property will be: Red-tailed hawks, Broad-tailed Hummingbirds, Tree Swallows, White Pelicans, Red-winged Blackbirds and Downey Woodpeckers.  These are just a few of what our course has to offer.  Keep checking back in with us to see our progress with the Audubon Society.
