Botany Plot


The Botany Plot is a protected field for large-scale in-ground plant experiments, similar to the Field Station. It is located on Cameron Boulevard (NC 751), within walking distance to the French Family Science Center. Unlike our core facilities on campus, staff services at the Botany Plot are limited. We provide field preparation each spring by mowing and tilling the two plots (5,734 ft2 & 4,606 ft2). Water & electricity at the site are provided, however, researchers need to bring all the equipment necessary for the maintenance of their experiments. Storage space for active research projects will be provided in the Botany Plot’s barn.
