The Highlands Project aims to restore golf course to its natural state

There are some that say a round of golf is a good walk spoiled. But Blandford Nature Center and the Land Conservancy of West Michigan have found one way to un-spoil that walk by restoring a golf course back into its natural state.

There are no more fairways at the Highlands Golf Club. The once 121-acre property of putting greens will soon be filled with native plants and wildflowers, and it's all thanks to restoration projects led by the Land of Conservancy of West Michigan.

Todd spoke to Marie Orttenburger, communications specialist at the Land Conservancy of West Michigan, to learn more about the progress being made for the Highlands Project.
