Want to learn more about local plant science landmarks now that spring has arrived?  Looking for a place to take visitors this summer? In conjunction with the 5th International Fascination of Plants Day  SIPS is promoting Plant Science Destinations in and around the Cornell campus.

Featured sites open everyday include Minns Garden, the Sustainable Landscape Trail, and Urban Eden Landscapes. During the week, you can visit additional indoor sites including Liberty Hyde Bailey Conservatory, the Plant Science Building Fossil Display, and the Soil Monolith Collection. Detailed descriptions of these and more can be found at the Plant Science Destinations page. The Liberty Hyde Bailey Conservatory Instagram feed highlights plants currently in bloom.

The goal of the 5th International Fascination of Plants Day is to get as many people as possible around the world fascinated by plants and enthused about the importance of plant science for agriculture and sustainable production of nutritious food, as well as for horticulture, forestry, and plant-based nonfood products such as paper, timber, chemicals, energy, and pharmaceuticals.
