"Each time you go back to Plantations you can find something that you didn’t see before or experience a different aspect of it, whether in a single season or across seasons. And then within the different collections, there’s always something that I never noticed before. It makes repeat visits even more of a treat."

— Kathleen Neal, Class of '06, Botanical Collections Intern 2004

"Plantations has a great amount of space for jogging, which is something I really enjoy. You can connect up to the Cayuga Trail across Fall Creek, and keep going, pretty much forever."

Margaret Corbit

"Plantations is a respite. You can get up, get out of your office, walk across campus, look at what nature is doing right now, and forget about what’s going on back at your desk. While you’re at it, you can also get all kinds of wonderful ideas about what you might be able to do at home."

— Margaret Corbit, CU Faculty, former CP employee, Education Committee

Phil Syphrit

"If you’re interested in spending a few hours taking pictures of one small clump of plants, we can offer that. If you’re interested in taking some nice long robust hikes, we offer that too. Many botanical gardens don’t have quite the range of gardens, terrain, and opportunity that we do. "

— Phil Syphrit, Gardener, Comstock Knoll and Kienzle Overlook

Phil Syphrit

"Plantations exists for the visitors. For people to see, study, relax, or learn, for our intern program, our outreach programs, our tours. These are the reasons we’re here."

— Phil Syphrit, Gardener, Comstock Knoll and Kienzle Overlook

Peter Cadiuex '06

"Being a public garden isn’t just about the garden—it’s also very much about the public. Plantations brings Ithaca into Cornell."

Peter Cadiuex '06

"Plantations is right on campus; it’s so easy to get to and so beautiful. It’s great to have a place to relax and walk around, and if you’re learning about plants, it’s a great resource. I always bring people here when they visit."

— Peter Cadiuex, Botanical Intern 2006, Masters Student, Landscape Architecture '08, CALS
