What Is An OTRF Membership?

When you become an annual member of OTRF, your donation helps to support the advancement of turfgrass through research projects. Funding allows us to research new and improved varieties of turfgrass, ensuring the advancement of one of the earth’s most precious resources.

  • Since becoming an OTRF member in 1979, I have believed in the benefits of healthy turf and have faithfully supported the OTRF’s charitable work. As an active University of Guelph alumnus, I am involved in the Guelph Turfgrass Institute and promoting it as a world-class reference point and voice for the environmental benefits of turf. I am proud to continue my OTRF membership and serve on their Board of Directors. By donating to OTRF I know I'm giving back to the industry that has given me so much.
