River Partners has planted native grasses inside a portion of the levee and regularly cares for these plantings. While Pacific does not own any undeveloped parcels or woodlands, it is our practice to prioritize an intensive amount of landscaping including trees, follow a policy of not removing trees, pursue increased amounts of native vegetation, and focus on maintaining redwoods and a variety of oak species on campus. River partners planted additional native grasses in FY15.
