What is Connect to Protect?
To help raise awareness of the importance of individualized golf facility BMP development, I am riding my bike across the country and offering a free consultation visit to any course along my way. My route will cover over 3,000 miles and take me through Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Wyoming, Idaho, and Oregon. I will offer to evaluate any interested facility’s current BMP programs in areas such as; Irrigation, Integrated Pest Management (IPM), Nutrient Management, Cultural Practices, Facility Management, Landscape, and Pollinators. As I make my way across the country I will also produce blog and vlog posts highlighting the BMP programs these courses have implemented. This content will be posted on my You Tube channel (Eco Turf Consulting) and shared via Twitter (@ecoturfconsult) and Instagram (@eco.turf.consulting). All of the details of my adventure can be found on my website at EcoTurfConsulting.com.
My goal is to raise awareness within the golf industry of the importance for golf course facilities to adopt BMPs and to demonstrate, to people outside the golf community, golf’s dedication to preserving and protecting water quality, pollinators and wildlife habitat.
