  5. If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make any noise? That's the question Ken Schumacher, a golf course superintendent in southeastern Michigan, asked himself when he wrote and implemented a BMP program then didn't tell anyone about it. "I wrote a BMP program after collecting bits and pieces from what other superintendents and chapters were doing," said Schumacher, superintendent at Bedford Hills Golf Club in Temperance, Michigan since 1993. "Finally, I asked myself 'what good is this if no one knows about it?' " So, eventually, Schumacher, right, decided to share his work with municipal leaders in Bedford Township. Before he realized what he had done, he had been recruited to serve on the board of the township's green initiative committee. And his work on the golf course has helped reinforce the environmental stewardship efforts that so many golf course superintendents excel at but struggle to share with others outside the industry. Now, Schumacher, 46, attends not only green committee meetings, but township meetings and more as well, but his success at the local level illustrates the challenges that face golf course superintendents when trying to convince others of their stewardship work on behalf of the environment. His BMP program includes fertilizer and chemical use, water management and wetting agents, recycling, conversion to LED lights and more. And he is able to prove what he is doing through regular testing of soil and water. "When I wrote our BMP program, I used information from 10 other places, and when I wrote it all down I discovered more than half of what we were doing we already had been doing for years," Schumacher said. "I thought if no one knows about, what good is it? How can you say you are not polluting if you don't have the data to prove it? Now, we have the data to prove it. "A lot of people (in local government) are anti-fertilizer. When I brought it to the township they asked me to be on the (green initiative) board. It has opened doors for us and it has made it easier to work with the township. We gained business from it." Schumacher's BMP program has gone a long way in changing the way some in local government think about golf. "We were a little apprehensive when we heard 'golf course.' When you hear that, you think about generating revenue and cutting expenses," said Al Prieur, Bedford Township Deputy Supervisor. "Environment is not the first thing you think of when you hear 'golf course.' " At least some in the township have changed their way of thinking, even if it is just how they think about Schumacher and Bedford Hills. In response to his efforts, the township honored Bedford Hills with its Environmental Excellence Award. "Ken is very focused on the environment," Prieur said. "What he has done is a real breath of fresh air. "If you have a golf course that is environmentally friendly, it means you have a golf course that is a good neighbor, and you don't have to worry about what is coming off the golf course to areas around it. "We are hoping to take what he has done at the golf course and take it to our local businesses." Although Bedford Hills is in Michigan, the southern edge of the course literally runs along the Ohio state line and the densely populated Toledo metro area. Schumacher even lives in Ohio and spends more time at OTF conferences in Columbus than he does East Lansing. Don Lawrence has known Schumacher for years. A former OTF president, Lawrence is also an ex-superintendent and a Michigan State turf grad. A sales rep for Advance Turf Solutions, Lawrence believes Schumacher's path is exactly what superintendents should follow to help dispel the notion that they do not water and spray without regard for the ecosystem. "He only does what is needed where it's needed when it's needed," Lawrence said. "It speaks highly of him to put himself out in front and be part of that community and be a voice of reason for the golf industry." There are a lot of golf courses in the Toledo area that includes southeastern Michigan, and although there is no cookie-cutter solution that fits all of them, Schumacher is willing to share his program with anyone who wants to use it as a template on which to build their own program. "I was surprised the township asked me to be on the board. I wasn't ready to get involved. That was not my intention," Schumacher said. "I don't want a parade, but I think when someone shows interest you have to tell them what you are doing. To me, this is the future of greenkeeping. If we don't all do this, we're going to die."

  26. Emerald ash borer is now found in 35 U.S. states and five provinces in Canada. Photo by U.S. Photo Service From one extreme to the other, people in the emerald ash borer's growing range are grousing, saying the tiny bug is becoming a bigger and bigger problem. The ash borer's presence in the Northeast is expected to intensify this year, according to experts, and scientists on the western side of its range are introducing other non-native species of insects in hopes of controlling its spread and the damage it causes. The spread of EAB since it first was found in the United States nearly two decades ago can be attributed to the lack of natural predators, but also to host susceptibility. Ash trees in EAB's native Asia have built up some immunity to the pest over time, while host trees in the U.S. have not. "Several of us around the country have evaluated host susceptibility to EAB since we first detected it in 2002. We've used a variety of experimental designs to evaluate host susceptibility," said Nate Siegert, entomologist at U.S. Department of Agriculture's Forest Service, in a webinar hosted by the Natural Resources Conservation Service. "What we consistently find across these studies is that North American species of ash are more susceptible than Asian species of ash due to co-evolution of the host and the insect pest. European species tend to be intermediate in terms of susceptibility." In Nebraska, the U.S. Department of Agriculture recently introduced at least two species of non-native, non-stinging wasps in the fight against EAB. The wasps, which are native to Asia, are natural predators of EAB and parasitize the pests in their larval stage. EAB entered the United States in 2002 aboard a Chinese cargo ship. Since then, it has spread to 35 U.S. states and five provinces in Canada and caused billions in damage, killing trees on golf courses, in parks and forest land. Native to eastern Asia, the EAB borer burrows into ash trees as an adult where it lays its eggs. The larvae feed on the layer beneath the bark, disrupting the tree's vascular system and its ability to take up water and nutrients and eventually kill the tree. The ash borer's current range has increased dramatically, according to the web site emeraldashborer.info, and borders Colorado to the west, Texas and the Gulf Coast to the South, the Atlantic to the East and north all the way to Maine. It is an area that includes Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin. Florida, Montana, North Dakota, Oregon and Wyoming are on high alert. It is found in Canada in Manitoba, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Ontario and Quebec. The EAB web site is a news and information portal that is a cooperative effort between Michigan State, Purdue and Ohio State universities, the Michigan and Ohio departments of Agriculture; the Michigan, Indiana and Ohio departments of Natural Resources; the USDA Forest Service; the USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS); and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. In recent years, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has been raising non-stinging parasitic wasps from Asia to help control EAB. Four species of wasp have proven to be effective at parasitizing 50-90 percent of the target EAB ova or larvae, Spathius galinae, Spathius agrili, Oobius agrili and Tetrastichus planipennisi, the last two being the same species used recently in Nebraska. Those parasitic predators lay their eggs on EAB larvae and when they hatch the juvenile wasps eat their way out, killing the host. The wasps are raised at the USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service facility in Brighton, Michigan.

  28. Country Club of New Canaan - Student Intern Candidates need to be hardworking and want to achieve success within the industry. Need to have a great personality, energetic, problem solving and good decision making. Should have a basic understanding of handwatering, fertilization, chemical applications and in-house project work. History of the Country Club of New Canaan The original nine holes were laid out by Willie Park Jr. during his first visit to the United States in the summer of 1895. The work on the original four holes was performed by the club members and commenced in early June and by the 4th of July 1897 the four holes were ready for play. The full nine holes measuring 2,677 yards were open by 1900. The second nine was designed by Walter Travis in the early 1920s but were only partially completed when cost overages forced the club to abandon the project. The project was eventually completed in 1947 based largely on the original Travis design with additional holes designed by Alfred Tull after the club purchased additional land where holes 5, 14 and 15 are today. The club is recognized as one of the 100 oldest clubs in America. The club just celebrated the 125th season in 2019. Future Projects The club membership recently approved a 21-million-dollar expansion of the clubhouse and relocation of the pool facilities. This work will began in August of 2018 and will continue through 2020. It will include a completely re-designed 1st hole, 8,000 sq. ft. practice green. A new short game with a practice fairway, a new 18th green model after the original Walter Travis green and new practice tee with practice center are all planned to follow in the coming seasons. A full Golf Course Master plan has been designed by renowned Golf Course architect Andrew Green and will be completed in the coming years.
