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

There are many species on campus native to Virginia and the Shenandoah Valley, including oaks, maples, certain pine species and various shrubbery. They are scattered around campus.

In the new Landscape Master Plan for BC, there is a section on sustainability that reads: “Utilize native and adaptive plantings where possible and appropriate to reduce necessary watering, fertilizing, trimming and overall care.”
