Does the institution use xeriscape landscaping techniques, including the selection of drought tolerant plants?:
A brief description of the program or practice:
Several techniques are used to reduce the amount of irrigation necessary on campus. Drought tolerant and native plants are selected for their hardiness in our climate and ability to thrive on naturally occurring hydration levels. Mulching is incorporated in several applications each season to retain soil moisture. Also, a centralized irrigation monitoring system is employed to reduce unnecessary irrigation during and after periods of rain.
