Camelot Golf & Country Club lands provide a variety of habitats for wildlife: open spaces, meadows, wildflower meadow, old growth pine forest, hardwood hammocks, lakes and riparian areas.
The Club’s environmental practices include:
- Use of indigenous plants to restore, enhance and beautify the natural landscape and provide shelter and food sources for wildlife.
- Use of vegetative buffer zones adjacent to lakes, water courses and forest areas to reduce fertilizer and chemical run-off.
- Water quality and water conservation monitoring.
- Naturalization of managed turf grass areas that are low play or no play zones.
- A bird box program to increase the population of songbirds.
- Integrated plant management practices to minimize fertilizer and pesticide use.
To guide future actions, the Club has developed a Naturalization Plan using guidelines developed by the RCGA and by leading North American golf and environmental organizations.
Camelot pledges to continue to maintain a high degree of environmental quality on the property.
