“The open space of a golf course is utilized not only by golfers, but is habitat for a variety of wildlife species. We welcome Highland Pacific Golf’s commitment to the environment and to managing the golf course with wildlife in mind.”
Jim Sluiter, Staff Ecologist for Audubon international
Highland Pacific covers 190 acres of land nestled between Thetis Lake Park and Francis King Park. Hundreds of species of plant and wildlife, including several rare and endangered species, live here or use the nature corridors on the property.
Our Course Superintendent and maintenance crew take their responsibility for environmental stewardship very seriously. This page is dedicated to the wildlife at Highland Pacific and the various initiatives that will enhance our environment.
