Frost Ravine is part of a large contiguous forest with a broad range of habitats including mature, high-quality stands, open fields and shrub thickets, all which contribute to the diversity of species and habitat. Management is divided among several Cornell units, including Cornell Botanic Gardens, Athletics and the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.
