Our parks, gardens, lawns, sports fields and golf courses offer space for play and relaxation and are essential for health. Maintaining them is important not only for aesthetic reasons, but for reasons of safety and security as well.

We hope you can use this down time to rest your fields, as needed, and maintain good maintenance practices.

We look forward to emerging from this unprecedented challenge as a strong and viable Association, state and nation and returning to our regular schedule soon.
