Environmentally Conscious Development Takes Root
Combining nature with development is an idea that's taken root at the ironwood golf course in Gainesville.
The course has been designated an Audubon Sanctuary since 1999, in part because of their commitment to incorporate trees native to North Central Florida in their landscape.
The city arborist, city of Gainesville beautification board and course manager Bill Iwinski started with a small idea that grew into a way to strike a balance between leisure and nature in our area.
As part of a commitment to help Gainesville grow green, the course planted 54 new trees ahead of the Florida's official Arbor Day.
