As campus life resumes under altered circumstances, nature is undeterred, gently moving through its natural cycles of growth, maturity, slumber, and rebirth, and offering a healing, steadying presence during uncertain times.
Cornell Botanic Gardens invites you to center yourself in the outdoor beauty of Cornell—just steps away if you are on campus, and a few clicks away if you are not. The cultivated gardens around the Nevin Welcome Center wear the clothes of late summer, with herbs and vegetables at their peak. Natural areas like Beebe Lake provide a shady refuge, while the F.R. Newman Arboretum invites us to savor the last warm days and anticipate the bright fall colors ahead.
