Greening the Greens: Restoring Wetlands on a Former Golf Course
Twenty-five volunteers helped to plant 11,500 native plants over 4 days! This fall, the Conservancy restored another fairway (about 1 ha) at the former golf course at Blackburn Lake Nature Reserve, building new wetlands to increase wildlife habitat. Tom Biebighauser, wildlife biologist and wetland ecologist, oversaw project construction.
