Native Plant Rebate Program is Alive!

Native Plant Rebate Program

Are you a BBLDWP customer? You qualify! Receive up to $100 dollars to transform your yard into a native plant haven. 

Use our shopping list of eligible plants and visit one of three local nurseries: Hood Growers, Hunter’s Nursery, or Emingers Mountain Nursery. Look for the orange native plant tags while you are shopping, fill out your list, and get it signed by nursery staff. If you get your plants elsewhere, including online, you must submit sufficient proof that the plants are a complete match to the scientific name found on our plant list (as evidenced by the Latin or scientific name from the label on their pot or plant tag). Receipts must be itemized and full photos including close up as well as one to identify the property where they were planted must be included.

Send your completed list, receipt, and photos of your native plant(s) installed at your property (served by the Big Bear Lake DWP) and get paid! Rebates are applied as credit to your water bill. 

This program is funded in part by Santa Ana Water Project Authority Proposition 1 grant funds. 

California is home to over 6500 plants which makes our state a biodiversity hotspot. One out of three of these plants are endemic, meaning they are found nowhere else in the world. By choosing native plants, you are helping to conserve a sense of place this is unique to Big Bear. Local animals, pollinators, and other wildlife depend on native plants as a food source and our yards are the bridge to nearby forests and wild habitat. Native plants are also best adapted to our climate, soil, and pests requiring less resources to thrive in your backyard. Once established, native plants use less water, fertilizers, pesticides, time and maintenance to create a beautiful and lush landscape that is made for Big Bear.
