“Environmental sustainability is a priority to everyone connected to the Bluejack National property,” said Eric Bauer, Director of Agronomy, Bluejack National. “We are all stewards of the environment, so being the first Audubon International Classic Program member in Texas is a proud first step in our partnership to preserve the legacy of the land.”
Besides Bluejack National, currently there are 13 Classic Program members in five countries (Canada, Singapore, China, Indonesia, and Bahamas,) and four states in the United States (Florida, Tennessee, Washington, and New York). Five members are certified in Indonesia, China (2), Florida, and Tennessee.
Based on the environmental framework provided by Audubon International, Classic Program members design and then implement a Classic Program Management Plan (CPMP) for the property by addressing the following issues: Wildlife Conservation and Habitat Enhancement, Water Quality Monitoring and Management, Integrated Pest Management, Water Conservation, Energy Efficiency, and Waste Management. The designation of Certified Classic Sanctuary is contingent upon the quality and completeness of the NRMP and its implementation keeping in mind that the property is an already disturbed land area.
Audubon International looks forward to working with Bluejack toward Classic Program certification.
