Our October 9 Meeting at Unity Lutheran Church Lower Level
"CONNAUGHT IS THE PLACE TO BEE"
Dustin Zdan has been the Golf Course Superintendent at Connaught Golf Club since 2005. He is a graduate of University of Manitoba with a Degree in Plant Science and also has a Turfgrass Diploma from University of Guelph. He is currently sitting on the Canadian Golf Superintendents Association as Alberta Director and is a Past President of the Alberta Golf Superintendents Association. He has spearheaded the environmental projects at Connaught with their Audubon Program and now Operation Pollinator. In association with these projects they host many school outings for Pond/Wetland study and are very proud of the Birdhouse Program with St. Patrick's School. Operation Pollinator, the subject of our talk, is a program where golf courses set aside areas for natural wildflowers to increase diversity and provide bee habitat. This was their second season and they are really excited with the results.
