Figures required to calculate the total area of managed grounds:
Area (double-counting is not allowed)
Area managed in accordance with an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program that uses a four-tiered approach 0 Acres
Area managed in accordance with an organic land care standard or sustainable landscape management program that has eliminated the use of inorganic fertilizers and chemical pesticides, fungicides and herbicides in favor of ecologically preferable materials 0 Acres
Area managed using conventional landscape management practices (which may include some IPM principles or techniques) 100 Acres
Total area of managed grounds 100 Acres

A brief description of any land excluded from the area of managed grounds (e.g. the footprint of buildings and impervious surfaces, experimental agricultural land, areas that are not regularly managed or maintained):

Land excluded from the area of managed grounds includes buildings and impervious surfaces, and foundation property that is difficult to access (like hills and trails). Cal State East Bay does not have experimental agricultural land.

8% of landscape is organic


A brief description of the institution's approach to plant stewardship:

Undeveloped land remains in a "as-is" condition unless changes are required. Where applicable, native plants are supported to minimize invasive species. Please note that their is no formal campus policy supporting this effort.


A brief description of the institution's approach to hydrology and water use:

Drainage water from the buildings goes to the ground. Campus buildings - Recreation & Wellness Center, North & South Science, Student-Faculty, Student Administration and part of the library buildings are having landscape made of paver stones (impervious in nature) (30 to 40% of water captured).


A brief description of the institution's approach to materials management and waste minimization (e.g. composting and/or mulching on-site waste):

The campus uses as practice recycled landscaping materials where available from primary campus vendors. There are no formal waste minimization policies outside of the current campus waste contract seeking single stream off-sight sorting.


A brief description of the institution's approach to energy-efficient landscape design:

Trees are grown within the 40 acres of parking on campus to reduce heat and provide shade.


A brief description of other sustainable landscape management practices employed by the institution (e.g. use of environmentally preferable landscaping materials, initiatives to reduce the impacts of ice and snow removal, wildfire prevention):
