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

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

Denison’s campus grounds are often used as a teaching lab, thus the diversity of native species is important. A desired native species list does exist and is used for most plantings. When necessary to satisfy needs based on site orientation, drainage, soil condition, serviceability and use - non-native and cultivars may be planted instead of native species. Known "undesirable" and/or invasive species are not considered in planting plans.
