Green Roof Open House Big Hit!
September 23, 2010
As part of the 2011 Agriculture Industry Days at the College of Agricultural Sciences, people flocked to visit the new green roof atop the Agriculture Building. People mingled as they discussed the logistics of how the roof works and the types of plants and soil systems used on the green roof. Many were surprised to learn about the weather station and data collected that is helping professors study the new ecosystem environment on the the roof.
For additional information regarding the green roof, please contact Professor Karen Midden at the College of Agricultural Sciences at 618-453-1786.
