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

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

In early 2012 Purdue partnered with the Indiana Wildlife Federation in developing a Sustainable Landscape plan. This plan included several goals regarding Native Plant Species selection. Purdue staff members are always looking for opportunities to use native plants whenever and wherever they are appropriate and serviceable. For example, recently we have planted the areas around Pfendler Hall, Forest Products Research and Ag Administration with native plants as a destination garden for the arboretum and so faculty in these buildings can use them as teaching aids for students.
