Host: Don Ferreri, Dave Gelino
Join us for a great day of education and fundraising as the Midwest supports the Wee One Foundation.
Our key speaker for the day will be Dr. Karl Danneberger, Professor at the Ohio State University. His expertise is plant physiology and ecology.
Dr. Danneberger will give two talks:
The Growth Habit of Creeping Bentgrass
& Disease Control: A Maverick' View
We're also securing a speaker from the Illinois Monarch Project - a consortium of stakeholders coming together to develop and implement strategies for monarch butterflies and pollinator species. Golf has been recognized as an important component in the system and the Midwest is taking part.
John Ekstrom will also follow up from his Chapter Delegate Presentation at our Annual Meeting and discuss our voting strategy for the coming GCSAA election.
