Turn golf course into native garden

Regarding the Oct. 16 article, "Lynnwood reviewing vendors for golf course": A botanical garden would be a winner and money-saver for the 75-acre golf course along 68th Avenue West, of which Edmonds Community College owns about half the property.
The community college horticulture department would benefit as an active classroom. The college, city parks and garden clubs could combine efforts and talents working together.
Native plants would draw birds, and bird watchers. All members of the community would have a greenbelt of beauty to walk, enjoy and learn about plants. Lynnwood would become known for its botanical garden. The garden would not be a money loser. There are still many other golf course in the Puget Sound area for golfers to enjoy.
When I have traveled, I have gone to the botanical gardens of that region. Among the ones I have enjoyed are Chicago; London; Dallas; South Coast, Palos Verdes Peninsula, Calif.; Maui, Hawaii; Bellevue and Everett botanical gardens.
