The greenhouses at SUNY-ESF were built in the late sixties and are used for research, to teach SUNY-ESF students and more. 

Manager Terry Ettinger says one of the unique uses is by art classes where students come and sketch to get a feel for texture and form.

Most of the plants are for research purposes but the greenhouses are open to the public too. If you would like to admire or to learn-like what a flower on a banana plant looks like-call ahead (470-6772) to schedule a visit.
