Greenhouse & Herbarium

The Biology Greenhouse is located on the campus of Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio. Frank Schemenauer is the Horticulturist in charge of these facilities.

The greenhouse facility has four houses. Two of the greenhouses are used for research and class projects. The remaining two houses hold the teaching collections, which include a desert area and a tropical floor planting. The greenhouse is open for school tours K through 12. Visitation by the general public is welcome. Hours can change each semester, so anyone may call 1-419-372-2375 for information or to arrange visiting times.
