Cranberry Highlands Golf Course has retained its designation as a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary through a program for golf courses created by Audubon International. To achieve that recognition, golf courses must demonstrate continued high-quality environmental planning, wildlife and habitat management, outreach and education, safety, reduced chemical use, water conservation and water quality management. Cranberry Highlands originally attained certification in 2009. Recertification is required every two years. The facility’s most recent recertification was announced in a letter from Audubon International Executive Director Doug Bechtel dated August 20. Cranberry Highlands is one of 29 courses in Pennsylvania, and 906 worldwide, to receive this coveted environmental designation. Free group tours of a nature trail on the grounds of Cranberry Highlands highlighting its wildlife maintenance efforts are available by advance reservation.
