It’s tempting to call this building a greenhouse, but the $5.3 million facility completed in 1987 is much more. There are 29 greenhouses environmentally controlled by microcomputers, an insect quarantine unit, labs, and classrooms. The high tech systems that regulate temperature, light and humidity allow researchers to grow four to five generations of plants annually instead of just two. Inside the main foyer are pamphlets for a self-guided tour of the facility and its indoor arboretum.
