Here is a response I got from our ground maintenance coordinator about native species:
"We use native plant species and species of plants that are adapted to this climate zone. If I understand the word prioritize as meaning do we always use natives the answer would be no. The campus is made up of many types of shrubs and trees that are used as teaching tools for classes and the community."
So, what is meant by the word "prioritize" for this credit?
