In July of 2003, Presumpscot River Watch received a $5,000 grant from the Casco Bay Estuary Project (CBEP) to assist the 21 golf courses located within the Casco Bay watershed with environmental stewardship efforts. This grant was later amended to the amount of $5,999. The project was implemented in three tasks: 1) Coordination for and promotion for a two-day conference for natural resource professionals and golf course superintendents; and 2) One-on-one meetings and technical assistance visits with Casco Bay golf courses to assess needs and promote the Audubon program; and 3) Initial environmental planning with Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program registered courses.
