Cornell Plantations -- the arboretum, botanical garden and natural areas of Cornell University -- welcomes all alumni and their families to Reunion Weekend, June 9-11, 2016.

During Reunion our rhododendrons, irises, and peonies will be blooming, and you may still find spring wildflowers in the Mundy Wildflower Garden and natural areas. At the botanical garden you can take a mini-tour, pick up a visitor map and explore on your own, browse the exhibits and gift shop in the Nevin Welcome Center, or just relax and enjoy the beauty and serenity of the gardens and grounds.

Free parking is available at the Nevin Welcome Center, but can be limited during busy times. You can ride a Cornell Reunion shuttle bus to the Dairy Bar/Stocking Hall on Tower Road and walk down the footpath from there. We are also an easy to moderate walk from most points on campus.

For more information, contact Kevin Moss at km274@cornell.edu, (607) 254-7430.

Nevin Welcome Center open from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., 7 days per week
