Grand Rapids' Blandford Nature Center and the Land Conservancy of West Michigan have teamed up to restore a local golf course back into its natural state. For over a century, the 128-acre property has been extensively watered and fertilized to maintain the golf course. The restoration of this landscape improve air and water quality, and support the city’s goal to increase forest canopy. This restoration project also offers educational opportunities and will be a model for large-scale urban restoration in the region.
