As executive Director of the MGCSA I provide support to the community through promoting the golf industry as a community's largest rain garden providing pollinator habitat, wildlife corridors, carbon sequestration, oxygen generation and a great destination for educational field trips. I also teach environmental Best Management Programs for my local watershed and the MPCA pertaining to a healthy watershed.
