Flatirons Golf Course recognized by Audubon International for environmental excellence
Boulder Parks and Recreation’s Flatirons Golf Course has retained its Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary designation for the second consecutive year. Flatirons Golf Course initially earned this coveted environmental certification in 2010, through the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses (ACSP), an Audubon International program. Flatirons is one of 839 golf courses world-wide to receive the honor by meeting the program’s rigorous standards.
“This accomplishment celebrates our department’s commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainable business practices,” said Kirk Kincannon, Director of the City of Boulder’s Parks and Recreation Department. “We are honored to receive this certification for the second consecutive year.”
To be certified, a course must demonstrate that it is maintaining a high degree of environmental quality in a number of areas: environmental planning, wildlife and habitat management, outreach and education, chemical use reduction and safety, water conservation, and water quality management.
