Preserving the campus landscape

Have special memories of Cornell’s beautiful campus, natural spaces, and views of Cornell Botanic Gardens? This living artwork is an outdoor classroom that is changing all the time and it’s up to Cornell specialists to ensure this resource is around for future students and the community. Come learn of the rich landscapes of Cornell's campus and natural areas with Cornell horticultural and landscape professionals.

Discover how climate change, invasive species, forest pests, and campus development impact Cornell’s natural and landscaped campus. These factors make it a challenge to maintain the natural beauty and biodiversity at Cornell and left unaddressed, this could forever change the landscape on campus and in the region.

You’ll hear about sustainable solutions used at Cornell to maintain forest and landscape health and how the Cornell Botanic Gardens Future Forests Initiative plans to grow the forests of the future.
