Welcome to the Plant Conservatory::
Cal Poly Plant Conservatory is a large glasshouse
facility located in the center of the Cal Poly
campus. The primary mission of the Cal Poly Plant
Conservatory is to maintain a diverse, well-documented,
and accurately labeled living plant collection
supporting and enhancing teaching and research
for the faculty and students of Cal Poly. A secondary
goal of the Conservatory is to help foster education
about plant biology and conservation of rare
species through support of community outreach
We are growing rare conifers for the new Center for Science and Math!
