Our new 11,500 square foot building designed by architect Doug Singletary houses Conservation and Research, and our administrative staff. It offers...

  • 160% increase in herbarium space (1,750 ft²)
  • our first molecular (440 ft²) and multipurpose (650 ft²) research labs
  • art exhibition/event rental space (750 ft²)
  • 8 offices & 16 cubicles (2,700 ft²)
  • classroom (560 ft²)
  • kitchen & breakroom
  • public restrooms

In addition, over 75% of the site is protected and restored - doubling the open space requirements for LEED® Certification - to form our new Island View Garden.
