The summer turf grass maintenance training focuses on best management practices (BMPs) for lawn/turf care maintenance. This training also includes a test for certification.

Join us to learn about best practices for managing turfgrass (mowing, seeding, fertilizer and pesticide application, and more). These practices will help you save time and money while protecting local lakes, rivers and habitat.
