Yes

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

ICC installs as many native plants into our groomed landscape areas as possible. We strive to purchase our plant material from local nurseries to ensure that they will survive in our designated zone. The types of native plants that we install into different areas depend on a few different criteria such as size, aesthetics and what kind of debris the plant might generate.
