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

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

Our policy is to choose the plants that will adapt better to the local conditions, we do prioritize native species, especially the drought tolerant ones. We choose mainly perennial plants, being careful to choose the best place to place each species. We also choose butterfly and bird friendly plants, in order to promote a more harmonious relationship with the local fauna.
