Does the institution prioritize the use of native plant species in landscaping?:

A brief description of the native plant program, policy, or practice:

Policy: All new construction and renovation projects must have an ecological site plan that follows the guidance of LEED Silver or higher. These site plans will include native and drought-resistant plant materials

Program implementation: The college has one completed construction project, and two projects in the planning stage, with site plans that include native plants.

Practice: In addition, based on a report prepared by the local Audubon Society chapter, the college has plans to replant with native plants when landscaping is changed in various parts of campus. We have begun this practice in some locations.
