Christy Woods

Christy Woods is an outdoor teaching laboratory for Ball State students, as well as the community. Located on the southwest corner of our campus, Christy Woods is a 17-acre property filled with mature deciduous forest, tall grass prairie, and other plant communities. The property is one of six managed by the Field Station and Environmental Education Center.

The university’s two main greenhouse are a part of Christy Woods: the Teaching and Research Greenhouse and the Rinard Orchid Greenhouse. A third greenhouse, the Environmental Studies Greenhouse is used for research and propagation of native species. Lastly, a fourth greenhouse is used to grow herbs to supply Ball State University Dining Services.

Within the woods, there are bulletin boards and an open wood shelter, which serves as a nature interpretation center. There is also an indoor classroom available for nature education.
