URI Outreach Center

About the Center

The CELS Kathleen M. Mallon Outreach Center provides a window to the URI College of the Environment and Life Sciences and RI Cooperative Extension through which citizens, communities, government agencies or businesses can access research-generated knowledge and obtain assistance to address a broad range of socioeconomic and environmental issues. We offer a variety of programs and services through the Center and also field requests for assistance from College and Cooperative Extension experts.

The Center is located in the URI Botanical Gardens, a demonstration landscape of sustainable plants and landscape practices at the heart of the URI campus in Kingston, Rhode Island. We welcome visitors to our garden for self-guided viewing daily. The office is open Monday-Friday from 9am - 4:30pm and the gardens are open from dawn until dusk. The Botanical Gardens feature evergreen plantings, perennials, a mini-orchard, vegetable and herb beds, a sustainable rose garden, a children's garden, ericaceous plantings, a water garden and much more.
