Land and Water Initiatives
Our campus is designed and managed to protect a diverse, resilient, and beneficial set of natural systems for the enjoyment of people and maintenance of key ecosystem services.
Landscape sustainability is encompassed by Cornell's design, construction, operation, and management of campus grounds and forests to enhance and promote healthy ecosystems, which in turn provide ecosystem services. Water conservation, effective storm water management, and protection of the regional watershed are all integral in maintaining finite water supplies, improving the health of ecosystems and, more broadly, creating and maintaining a sustainable future for our campus and the region.
