Located in Chestertown Maryland, Washington College is a private institution of higher learning offering over 40 degree programs. What makes Washington College special is this: it’s the first college chartered after the Americans gained independence from the British, in 1782. It’s also the only school that George Washington helped to fund, with 50 guineas.
Sitting on 112 acres in a rural area of Maryland, the college is uniquely situated between the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic beaches. Students on the path to an environmental study degree have plenty of outdoor options. And in inclement weather or controlled studies, there is 3 room greenhouse on the third story of the John S Toll Science Center.
The classroom greenhouse has many features that allow students to complete research in climates, conservation, and energy. The 3 rooms offer the ability to control conditions and separate plants into growing areas. Learn more about our classroom greenhouses here.
