Description of Programs
Desert Landscaping Kiosks
Kiosks are touch screen CD ROM on desert landscaping developed by the
Water Resources Research Center. The CD-ROM has full information on 600
low water use plants. The multimedia database includes plant size and
growth rate, soil and sun requirements, irrigation needs, place of origin,
wildlife interactions and dozens of other useful factors. There is one
stationary and one mobile model in Yuma County.
Audience: Adults interested in native plants and/or low water
use plants for landscaping.
Impacts: These kiosks encourage the use of native low water use
plants thus reducing water consumption.
