Our Steps Towards Sustainability

  • We practice Integrated Pest Management or IPM
  • We use native, zone hardy site-specific plants
  • We limit irrigation to athletic fields and the main Campus Green only
  • We collaborate with campus partners on stormwater management solutions
  • We reduce our plastic waste by returning flower pots to our grower/supplier for reuse.
