In the mid-1990s, the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana, was set to begin development on the Warren Golf Course. The University initially designed the course to have Juday Creek, a historic waterway with declining ecological health, run through it. To protect the creek, community groups worked with Notre Dame researchers to restore it in conjunction with the development of the golf course. After the restoration, researchers found native species returned to the creek and the aquatic environment improved. The creek is now used as an educational site and is a prominent natural feature on a championship golf course.
