It was another awesome day at Westminster National with 5th grade students from Winfield Elementary School visiting for a STEM education First Green Field Trip. WBAL was there covering the event and the story will air TONIGHT at 5:30 PM.
In addition, GCSAA.TV also released their video they made of the First Green Field Trip that MAAGCS and Westminster National GC hosted in March.

What is First Green?
First Green is an innovative environmental and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education outreach program using golf courses as environmental learning labs. Golf Course Superintendents and/or local golf course representatives host students on field trips where they test water quality, collect soil samples, identify plants, design plantings, assist in stream bed restoration and are involved in the ecology and environmental aspects of the golf course. The students are also introduced to many other aspects of golf.
