Plant Conservatory


The Plant Conservatory is a 1,375 square foot greenhouse used as a living laboratory for many Plant Science courses. The conservatory features a variety of tropical and subtropical plants as well as plants common to the interior spaces of shopping malls, hotels, and offices. Paths meander through the greenhouse along a small pond and stream leading to a waterfall at the back. Orchids, palms, bromeliads, begonias, and foliage plants fill the greenhouse. In the winter months, the conservatory provides a green haven from the cold winter.


The conservatory is located in the greenhouse range, adjacent to Hodder Hall and open to the public during the following times:


School year: Monday - Friday, 8 am - 5 pm

Summer:  Monday - Friday, 7 am - 3:30 pm
