Abstract/Contents:Discusses how Pinehurst Resort in North Carolina earned the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA) President's Award for Environmental Stewardship due to their collaboration with the Safe Harbor Program. States that "not only is [Pinehurst Resort] the original private property to enter the Safe Harbor Program, but it actually developed the idea of such a thing as an answer to the presence of a member of the endangered list, the red-cockaded woodpecker, on six of eight Pinehurt golf courses." Describes the course's key task as "[maintaining] the woodpecker's habitat through a pine forest management strategy that encourages the bird's presence by eliminating mid-story hardwoods and nurturing pine forage growth attractive to the species and essential to its survival." Details how Pinehurst has made its environment "bird-friendly," including clearing out hardwood understory on their Number 8 hole. Concludes that "there are a lot of golf courses that could enroll in different Safe Harbor programs, whether the endangered species is actually on their property of adjacent to it...typically, superintendents know golf courses are great areas for different species to thrive on."
