Lake Tahoe Golf Course is an Audubon International Cooperative Sanctuary and recently earned its recertification for the 18th award. Lake Tahoe Golf Course was certified as an Audubon International Cooperative Sanctuary in 2003 and has been successfully re-certified ever since. Recertifications occur every two-to-three years, with the next recertification due in Spring 2022.
Audubon International’s vision statement is “to be recognized as the most effective, proactive and respected environmental organization promoting, fostering, and advancing sustainability, biological diversity, ecosystem management, and ecological restoration.”
The Audubon designation involves continued course improvements in environmental planning, wildlife and habitat management, water quality management and conservation, chemical use reduction and safety (integrated pest management), and outreach and education.
The award-winning course has also received the ELGA (Environmental Leader in Golf Award).
