The Trump Organization's vision and respect for the natural beauty of Bedminster inspired the stewardship of the largest habitat dedicated to the protection of endangered and threatened grassland birds in New Jersey.
NJ Audubon & U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service
As a recent member of New Jersey Audubon's Corporate Stewardship Council (CSC), Trump National Golf Club (Trump National), has entered into a partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) and New Jersey Audubon (NJA) to partake in a habitat restoration project on their Bedminster, Somerset County, NJ facility.
As part of this endeavor, Trump National has been working diligently over the winter months to remove non-native invasive vegetation from the property to prepare for native vegetation seedings/plantings this spring. By establishing these habitat meadows around the course consisting of native wildflowers and warm-season grasses, as well as planting native trees and shrubs around wetland and other riparian zones on the property, the course’s value to migratory birds and pollinators will be significantly enhanced.
Numerous bird nesting boxes supplied by USFWS have also been placed throughout the property, with a focus to attract North America's smallest falcon, the American kestrel, (which is also a NJ Threatened species).
