Westwood Plateau Named Wildlife Friendly

WESTWOOD PLATEAU GOLF AND COUNTRY CLUB NAMED “WILDLIFE FRIENDLY” GOLF COURSE

Westwood Plateau Golf and Country Club has been named a “Wildlife Friendly Golf Course”, by the Institute of Urban Ecology at Douglas College. The partial findings of an I.U.E. investigation into the wildlife habitat value of three golf courses in the Greater Vancouver Regional District were published in the Institutes newsletter this fall. Nadine Pinnell, an I.U.E. Eco-Ed Coordinator writes, “Forested areas, undisturbed native vegetation, and small bodies of water throughout the [golf] course provide lots of natural habitat for wildlife. Course managers have further enhanced this natural habitat by installing nesting boxes for wood ducks, songbirds and bats”. The newsletter also goes on to mention Westwood’s five-year endeavour to be certified as a cooperative wildlife sanctuary by the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary System of Canada.
