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

As campus facilities are constructed or renovated, Cal Poly Pomona institution opts for uses native plantings in replacement. In addition, areas of lawn have been converted to native and drought tolerant planting beds. Approximately 40-50% of the Landscape planting on campus would be considered a native or “water wise” planting. Of the newer installations on campus in the last 10 years, approximately 70-80% are native/drought tolerant.
