We are passionate about our goal to inspire curiosity and wonder of our natural world. Our hope is that conservation of plants and healthy ecosystems will be the fruits of these experiential seeds planted. Come see us or follow us on Instagram to see what's blooming!



The native plant gardens surrounding the Plant Sciences building are always open and available but if you would like to access the greenhouse collection for your students or lab course please contact the greenhouse supervisor.

We participate in a variety of outreach events throughout the year if you are interested in volunteer opportunities or are curious about adding a hands on botanical activity or guided tour to your event please call Sunshine and we will try our best to work with you

Faculty of the department and other educators can utilize these living classroom extensions for a variety of botany, biology, and ecology lessons. There is also grow space available for classes and individual research including grow benches in the Plant Sciences building greenhouses and a variety of growth chambers.
