Golf Course Gives to Greens
By Matthew Claxton, Langley AdvanceMarch 20, 2012
A Langley environmental group will benefit from an annual donation made by a local golf course.
The Redwoods Golf Course has given $1,000 to the Langley Environmental Partners Society (LEPS). The donation was in appreciation for LEPS’ work over the last 18 years as one of the community’s top environmental groups.
LEPS does a great deal of work for Langley Township, undertakes educational programs about compost and invasive plants for young and old alike, and works with a variety of stream keeping groups and volunteers to keep rivers and creeks in prime shape for salmon spawning.
The donation is part of a program by Redwoods to recognize and donate to one significant Langley charity per year.
Each time a golf course staff member plays a round of golf, they make a $2 donation. All donations are accumulated during the year and at the end of the calendar year funds are tabulated and awarded to the charity of choice.
