2018 TLI Gun Draw

"While industry and technology have provided jobs and goods to make life easier, the effect on the environment has been substantial. We can help restore this precious earth with something as simple as turfgrass – the earth’s living skin."

- Doug Fender, TPI Executive Director 1983 – 2004
