At Cornell Botanic Gardens, we do the greatest good by providing the living laboratory to involve students and faculty in experiential learning, address critical issues of global sustainability, and build connections between plants and the world’s diverse cultures.
Cornell Botanic Gardens operates as a museum of living collections and serves as a foundation for research, teaching, and outreach by Cornell faculty, students, and the surrounding community. The Gardens and its natural areas are a destination for alumni and tourists—a place of serenity and inspiration for students, hikers, gardeners, and visitors from all over the world. The Gardens encourage people to learn about biocultural diversity, discover solutions to critical environmental issues, and improve their physical and emotional well-being.
