Soar over Cornell Botanic Gardens, as winter recedes, ushering in the season of rebirth.  Early signs of spring are emerging in the natural areas and gardens—ice melts away on Beebe Lake, Cascadilla Creek flows freely through the gorge, and snow drops push their way through the snow, sprinkling the ground with tiny blooms.

The transitions between seasons are among the most magical at Cornell Botanic Gardens. Enjoy this one, as we look forward to warmer days and daffodils.

Your gift of any size helps make the breathtaking majesty of this treasured place and its plant collections accessible to visitors, students, and researchers.
