Countryside 'Nature' Program Wins IPRA Conservation Award


The Illinois Park and Recreation Association recently named the Lake County Forest Preserves' "On Par With Nature" program at Countryside Golf Course as recipient of the Conservation Program Award.

The award will be presented at the IPRA 1997 annual conference in January.

The IPRA Conservation Program Award honors public recreation and conservation agencies in the state for outstanding and innovative achievements in environmental conservation projects or programs. The Forest Preserve's Countryside Golf Course in Mundelein was recognized for its environmental projects as a certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary and accompanying educational Nature Golf Tee Signs. Countryside is only the third public golf course in the state and 14th in the nation to receive the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary distinction.

Some of the Cooperative Sanctuary projects at Countryside include placing nesting boxes for bluebirds and wood ducks in open spaces, the introduction of native grasses and wildflowers, conserving water, sensitive integrated pest management practices and maintaining food and cover for wildlife.

The accompanying nature tee signs provide course information, descriptions and artwork of the wildlife that inhabit the natural areas of the golf course and explain how wise stewardship at Countryside allows nature to flourish.
