Campus planning

Campus turf reduction planning

Last year, thanks to a variety of water conservation efforts implemented by our Arboretum and Public Garden team, our campus was able to reduce our landscape water inputs by 31% — 6% more than Governor Brown’s 25% water reduction mandate — but we are still planning to do more.

Right now we’re focusing on lawns were we can reduce, cut back, or eliminate irrigation without impacting our trees. Stay tuned for more information about areas that may be impacted by water reductions and areas targeted for landscape conversions.
