Bloodroot in the Mundy Wildflower Garden in spring

At Cornell Botanic Gardens, we’re pleased to make our grounds, trails, and outdoor spaces available to the public during the COVID-19 crisis.


We ask that you strictly observe social distancing:
• Maintain the required distance of six feet from others
• Gather in groups no greater than 10.

In addition, please refrain from interacting directly with botanic gardens staff. We are operating with essential personnel only, who are working diligently to keep our spaces safe and open for your enjoyment.

The F. R. Newman Arboretum gates and lower Cascadilla Gorge trails remain closed for the season and will reopen at a future date.
