The Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses (ACSP) is an award-winning education and certification program that helps golf courses protect the environment and preserve the natural heritage of the game of golf. The program helps golf officials enhance valuable natural areas and wildlife habitats that golf courses provide, improve efficiency and minimize potentially harmful impacts of golf operations.
Another component of the program is the Audubon Signature Program, designed to provide environmental planning assistance to new developments. The program assists landowners, including golf courses and developers, design for the environment so that both economic and environmental objectives are realized. Once construction is complete, involvement in the ACSP ensures that managers apply sustainable resource management practices for the long-term stewardship of the property.
