Fall 2011 Newsletter

For a couple weeks every fall, the trees give us a front row seat to one of the most spectacular shows in nature.  Whether you’re still enjoying the performance or taking in the cool, crisp air as you rake up the now-fallen leaves, it’s the perfect opportunity to take in the splendor of the natural world.  We encourage you to get out there on the trails or build up a pile of leaves for the kids (and yourself) to jump into!

In this edition, you’ll find a number of stories about efforts by the affiliates at Field Sport Concepts to reach out to the local community, some of our most recent work, and ideas for repurposing underutilized golf courses.  We have been busy further developing our social media presence, giving you even more opportunities to learn about our mission on FacebookTwitterLinkedIn and by subscribing to our blog.  And as always, if you know anyone who might benefit from our services, please consider forwarding this newsletter along to them.

And back to the topic of falling leaves, we encourage anyone who is contemplating any land planning projects in the next year to consider photogrammetry before the snow starts falling.  The optimal time to have your land flown is right after the leaves fall but before it snows so that you can see the greatest detail.  If you might be taking on any projects in the near future, we are eager to assist you in coordinating this process.

If you have any questions or comments or would like more information on how we can serve you, please do not hesitate to contact us.  We appreciate your readership and look forward to hearing from you!

All the best,

Bob McKee
