Native Drought-Tolerant Landscapes Campaign

Our goal

Help Palisadians enrich their gardens and local ecosytems with thriving native drought-tolerant landscapes.

Native gardens beautify our landscape with their year-round rich colors, textures, and aromas.  Native gardens save water, using 80 percent less water than conventional gardens. They can endure droughts and  thrive in California’s dry summers and sometimes wetter winters. Native gardens cool our neighborhoods on hot days by adding moisture to the atmosphere.


The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) finds that 30 to 50 percent of the world’s land surface must be friendly to nature to help preserve the resilience of the Earth’s biodiversity and ecosystem services. One important element to achieving this ambitious goal is making human settlements more friendly to their local ecosystems.  Native gardens do that by providing food and shelter for native birds, butterflies, and other pollinators.
