Explore sustainability in practice in this narrated virtual tour of sites across Cornell Botanic Gardens and the Cornell campus. The 16 sites on the Sustainable Landscapes Trail illustrate green infrastructure and landscapes that enhance and promote healthy ecosystems, and highlights sustainability features designed with staff, student, faculty, and research collaboration.

Cornell Botanic Gardens hosts seven of the sites, all developed for maximum sustainability, ecosystem services, and natural beauty, using the gardens and natural areas as a living laboratory. Take a virtual walk along the trail and learn about the many benefits humans gain from the natural environment and from properly functioning ecosystems.
