Urban Water Wise Garden

Community Water Wise Landscaping Project

What we do?


The goal of this project is to understand the role of water use in our urban desert landscape of Fresno. We are able to do this by building relationships with local government, housing developers, homeowners, community organization, educational institutions,and more. Hopefully our work will result in helping create a healthier environment. Our current projects are


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?
