Sustainable Landscapes Trail
Many of our sustainable practices are part of Cornell’s Sustainable Landscapes Trail, which highlight sustainable design, green infrastructure, and landscape sustainability practices across Cornell campus. This trail fulfills a goal in Cornell’s Climate Action Plan, to “demonstrate, monitor and interpret best practices in sustainable landscape planning, design and management.”
Follow the Sustainable Landscapes Trail on your mobile device using a free app. Download the “Pocketsights Tour” from the App Store or Google Play. When you open the app, the tour closest to you will appear at the top of the list. Scroll to select a tour of interest.
