The CNS greenhouse facilities

CNS has three greenhouse facilities. The Research & Education Greenhouse (above left) consists of a Silver-rated LEED facility, built in 2011, and includes 12 separate rooms in two wings that serves as both greenhouse and laboratory. Also part of the facility is a renovated greenhouse with four rooms of upgraded teaching and research facilities.

The six Morrill Greenhouses (above right), which are primarily devoted to teaching, house a collection of over 680 genera comprising more than 225 families. This facility is open from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and visitors are always welcome.

The Durfee Conservatory (below), the university's oldest greenhouse facility, opened in 1867. Durfee is open to visitors from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
