Tour the Green Roof on Howlett Hall

Sep 17, 2015, 2:00pm - 4:00pm
Green Roof on Howlett Hall, 2001 Fyffe Road, Columbus, OH

Join us for appetizers and a special tour of the 12,000 sq. ft. green roof on Howlett Hall.

In August and early September of 2013, the Green Roof on Howlett Hall was installed in the Chadwick Arboretum & Learning Gardens – the first retrofit green roof at The Ohio State University. This 12,000 square foot green roof is located on Howlett Hall, home to the OSU Department of Horticulture & Crop Science, Department of Food Science and Technology, and the Chadwick Arboretum & Learning Gardens Headquarters. This site is an ideal location with high visibility, handicap access, and easy walk-out access from the main entrance of the building, allowing it to be a demonstration for future green roofs not only in Columbus, Ohio but in the world.

If you haven't visited this green roof yet, now is your chance. Join other students and faculty for a guided tour.
