LONGMONT, Colo. – Audubon International is recognizing Ute Creek Golf Course for 10 years of certification as an Audubon International Cooperative Sanctuary through its commitment to environmental stewardship and efforts to maintain a comprehensive environmental management program focused on wildlife and habitat management, water conservation, resource management, and outreach and education.

“We're very proud to count Ute Creek Golf Course among our members,” said Christine Kane, CEO at Audubon
