Wister Education Center & Greenhouse

The Scott Arboretum of Swarthmore College

The Wister Education Center and Greenhouse is a sustainably designed (LEED Gold) facility that serves the staff and volunteers of The Scott Arboretum of Swarthmore College in their mission “for the encouragement of horticulture in its broadest sense.”  The state-of-the-art greenhouse provides space for plant propagation, overwintering, cultivation and display.  The technologically rich education center provides a venue for hands-on workshops, educational seminars and social gatherings.  In short, the new building facilitates the Arboretum’s task of maintaining Swarthmore College’s reputation of being “the most beautiful college campus in America.”  The arboretum and Wister Center have 105 volunteers and approximately 35,000 visitors annually.
