New location for 2019 trials

Starting in 2019, the Cornell Annual Trials Program will have a new home!  We’re moving from the off-campus Bluegrass Lane research facility to the grounds adjacent to the Nevin Welcome Center at the Cornell Botanic Gardens.  This will allow the public to visit our trials throughout the growing season.  The Cornell Botanic Gardens and natural areas are open free of charge, seven days a week, sunrise to sunset.  Parking and visitor information.

Are you a Cornell student interested in working with the Annual Trials Program this summer? Check out the Annual Trials internship, offered through the Cornell Botanic Gardens summer internship program.
