2020 trials at Cornell Botanic Gardens

Our 2020 Floriculture Field Day has been canceled, but the Cornell Annual Trials are in progress at the Cornell Botanic Gardens, on the grounds adjacent to the Nevin Welcome Center. The gardens are open and free of charge to the public, but please note that the Nevin Welcome Center is closed until further notice and there are no public restrooms available. Visitors to the grounds are required to wear a face covering, maintain at least a 6-foot distance from others, visit alone or in small family groups, and refrain from interacting with staff. Visit the Cornell Botanic Garden’s website for details and updates to visitor policies during the pandemic.
