Gary Deters takes on a New Role

By Eric Watkins

We are excited to announce that Gary Deters will be our new lawn water conservation educator!  Gary, who spent 23 years in golf course turf management, six of those years as a superintendent at St. Cloud Country Club, has been our field facility manager since March 2020. Gary has been an excellent addition to our team, ensuring that our research plots are maintained well, and experimental treatments are applied carefully and consistently.
