Does the institution prioritize the use of native plant species in landscaping?:
A brief description of the native plant program, policy, or practice:
Under RVCCs Memorandum of Understanding with the EPA, RVCC adopted a GreenScapes policy in March 2011. This formalized RVCC's policy of planting native plant species, adopted as part of the River Friendly program in 2010. The GreenScapes policy states RVCC's goal to choose native species for at least 75% of all non-turf plants, and preferably 100%, and will not plant invasive species.
