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

Native plants are used predominately in the flower beds on campus to reduce maintenance and replanting. The UAF Campus Landscape Management Plan outlines the use of Native Plans for construction projects. "Use native plants as indicated on the UAF Campus Landscape Palette for restoration of the construction site, except at the campus entrances and intersections as approved by the CLS"
