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

Approximately 60% of the UCCS campus is native landscaping. This is defined as native plant life allowed to grow pretty much unassisted and unchecked. UCCS encourages native landscaping to be used as much as possible when designing and constructing on campus.

UCCS is a member of Plant Select®. The purpose of Plant Select is to seek out, identify and distribute the very best plants for Colorado landscapes. Being a member offers us more opportunities to educate students, faculty, staff, and the community about plants that thrive in local landscapes.
