Well deserved congrats to Oldfield’s Naturalist, Jill Kombrink, who served on the Master Naturalist board for 2016 as Community Outreach Chair. After the recent annual board meeting, Jill was elected Vice President of the Association for the 2017 term. Her role as VP will include assisting the President with board meetings, overseeing existing projects to completion, providing input on future projects and events and sending correspondence to the members. Jill is looking forward to the role she will play in enhancing the Master Naturalist Teacher Program, of which she is a former graduate .
For those not familiar, the Master Naturalist Association partners with the Lowcountry Institute to train and educate participants through hands-on learning experiences to become Master Naturalists. The LCMNA provides graduates of the LowCountry Master Naturalist Program with a means to continue their environmental education by building on the learning they began in the Master Naturalist class. Another important function of the LCMNA is to insure that volunteer activities, aimed at improving/protecting the Low country environment, are provided for its members. This helps members fulfill volunteer hour requirements as set by the state Master Naturalist office at Clemson University.

Oldfield is the first private community in South Carolina to earn the Audubon Green Community Award for their ongoing sustainability initiatives from Audubon International, a non-profit environmental organization. Members of Audubon International’s Sustainable Communities Program are eligible for the award, which recognizes significant environmental achievement and recognizes completion of the first stage en route to earning the rigorous designation as a Certified Audubon International Sustainable Community.

Oldfield Club has maintained a designation as being recognized by Audubon International for both our Golf Course and our Community. Many reference this as being "Audubon Certified" but as it pertains to our Community, there are several awards and distinctions that can be achieved. We are very pleased to announce that Oldfield Club has received the prestigious distinction as Audubon's "Neighborhood for Nature" award winner. This is a distinction on top of our Green Neighborhood designation, and we are the only community to receive this award for 2015. Click HERE to view the official award announcement by Audubon International.
A special thank you and congratulations to Jill Kombrink, Oldfield Naturalist, for spearheading the efforts. Jill worked vigorously with our department managers, Outfitters Committee and with support from residents to assemble all the work and materials needed to achieve this award. With Jill's leadership and commitment, we will not only maintain our Neighborhood for Nature designation each year, but strive for Audubon's highest award of "Sustainable Community." This is a distinction that only two other private communities across the country have attained, neither of which are in the Southeast. For obvious reasons we want to be the first private community in the state and in this region to achieve this distinction and award.
Awards are significant in providing the recognition a person or organization deserves. However, the reward in all of this is seeing a community come together to support the many initiatives that help make our efforts with Audubon International truly meaningful. This allows us to maintain our community standards and the feeling of a place carved into nature; it's part of the essence of what makes Oldfield so unique.
Among Oldfield’s most prized accolades for stewardship was an honor bestowed by Audubon International. Thanks to careful design and a continued commitment to preservation, Oldfield’s golf course was named a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary in recognition of its “environmental planning, wildlife and habitat management, chemical reduction and safety, water conservation and water quality management.”
