Research Greenhouse Complex

The Research Greenhouse Complex aims to support university-wide research. Over the past 20 years, we have supported projects that have encompassed many disciplines and departments, including:

  • forestry
  • biology
  • chemistry
  • environmental sciences
  • ecological monitoring and assessment
  • engineering
  • Ecological Restoration Institute
  • Center for Sustainable Environments

During the past six years, our mission has expanded to include: 

  • growing plants for habitat restoration
  • developing a campus arboretum
  • developing partnerships with local, state, and federal agencies that are involved with plant production for restoration
