Self-guided walking tour of native plant landscapes

On September 18, 2014 we hosted a 1-day “Convert Your Water-Hungry Lawn to a Drought-tolerant Landscape” workshop sponsored by the California Native Grassland Association. Participants received in-depth information for converting high-water-use conventional lawns into beautiful low-water-use, attractive, native, and climate-appropriate landscapes.

A portion of the day included a walking tour of a few campus and Arboretum locations where lots of California native grasses and other plants have been incorporated in the landscapes.

DOWNLOAD the TOUR. It includes a selection of the drought-tolerant plants located in each of the areas.
