The 4000 square-foot Greenhouse opened in 1983. Designed by architect Donald Watson, this building won national awards for energy conservation and solar design. The interior includes living exhibits, including exotic species, along with work areas and a classroom. Many of the Nature Center's horticultural programs are presented in the greenhouse space. The greenhouse is open to the public.

On the southeastern corner of the Greenhouse is a Lath House constructed in 2002-03 as an Eagle Scout project with funding from the Chilton Foundation. It is used to harden off and house plants from the greenhouse.
