Why it’s important?
Through this program we will help homeowners better understand the usefulness of water conserving plants in yards. This will also provide a bird friendly environment. We are currently doing a study of grassy lawn and yards with water wise plants. In addition, we also study peoples understanding of water use, cities water policy and Fresno’s water metering project.
What you can do to help?
