River Watershed Council.

Learn how a proposed 390-acre golf course will impact our last great creek.

Review the proposed 390-acre Ave Maria golf course prior to the Ann Arbor
Township public hearing. A special branch of Fleming Creek runs through
rolling hills, hardwood forests and many wetlands that enhance the beauty of
the site. This is the only remaining high quality creek in the Ann Arbor
area and the creek's quality at the development site is among the best in
the Huron River system. Join us at this informal presentation about the
proposed golf course design and its potential impacts to the environment.
The Project Principal, the Fleming Creek Advisory Council, a wetland
consultant, and the manager of an Audubon Sanctuary golf course will answer
your questions.

Learn what golf course management and design can do to protect the
environment, with examples from an Audubon sanctuary golf course.
