As stated in the Environmental Stewardship Action Plan, JMU will:
Develop a plan for sustainable grounds, where sustainable may be native, naturalized, reforested, or ultra-low maintenance
- Conduct engineering analyses of Newman Lake and document sustainable landscape opportunities
- Document sustainable landscape opportunities for the CISAT Hillside and Duke Sculpture Garden
Develop a plan to exceed the current university green building, nutrient management, pest management, and storm water guidelines
Examples of our progress:
The third phase of the East Campus Hillside Naturalization project was completed. A campus landscape tracking and management tool, a Nutrient Management Plan, and an Integrated Pest Management Plan for sustainable grounds were further developed.
