St. Charles Horticulture Research Center

The St. Charles Horticulture Research and Demonstration Center, at the northeast corner of Illinois Route 38 and Peck Road, is a 100-acre tract of land uniquely situated at the intersection of urban and rural landscapes. The site offers a landmark opportunity to revitalize horticulture and specialty crops research, outreach and education in the greater Chicago area and to expand beyond horticulture to issues that affect urban green spaces.
