Michigan Turfgrass Environmental Stewardship Program (MTESP)
The Michigan Turfgrass Environmental Stewardship Program (MTESP) is a voluntary, proactive program designed to prevent pollution and reduce environmental risks on golf properties, sports fields, parks, school grounds, and lawn care companies. The program began in 1998 and represents a unique partnership between the Michigan Department of Agriculture, Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, Michigan State University, and the Michigan Turfgrass Foundation. Over 300 properties have participated in the program and over 65 are certified. Certification requires compliance with environmental laws outlined in the program and elevated protection of natural resources.
