Tour of Danforth Plant Science Center
Online registration for this event is now closed. Additional registrants are welcomed
at the door of the event.
Founded in 1998, the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center is a not-for-profit research institute with a mission to improve the human condition through plant science.
The new 79,000 sq. ft. William H. Danforth Wing is currently seeking certification under LEED for New Construction, and will be the focus of our building tour. The expansion includes four levels, three of which contain flexible labs, gathering spaces, open office suites and computational facilities for up to 100 scientists. The surrounding landscape is currently undergoing reconstruction of a native Missouri tall grass prairie.
Tour attendees will be guided through the new addition and learn about the building’s many sustainable design and construction features from members of the project team.
