Cornell is a community of scholars, known for intellectual rigor and engaged in deep and broad research, teaching tomorrow’s thought leaders to think otherwise, care for others, and create and disseminate knowledge with a public purpose.
Previous years of tomato research has focused on the ripening stages, but a study led by Cornell aims to identify the genes in the fruit that spur development, research that could improve cultivation in drought conditions.
The Cascadilla Gorge Trail, between Lynn St. and Stewart Ave., is now reopened after being closed for the winter.
Cascadilla Gorge was originally preserved and donated to Cornell University by Robert H. Treman in 1909 to support public use, education and enjoyment. The Cascadilla Gorge Trail system, initially constructed during the Civilian Conservation Corp. era, ascends 400 feet in elevation between Lynn St. and Hoy Rd., and currently totals 7,800 feet in length. Cornell Plantations manages Cascadilla Gorge, and is committed to protecting the natural area, providing ongoing educational use, and supporting safe public recreation and enjoyment of the gorge.
