Arnot provides a place for Cornell to carry out their mission of Teaching, Extension, and Research
Just south of Ithaca, the Arnot Teaching and Research Forest holds a diversity of habitats across its 4,075 acres, including open land, ponds, a sugarbush (for maple sugaring) as well as several species of pine.
The Arnot Forest is a resource for the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, supporting student education, extension education, and facilitates learning in sustainable agriculture, environmental stewardship, safe and secure food supplies, and economic vitality.
Arnot Forest is unique amongst departmental facilities in that it integrates all programs across teaching, research, and extension functions amongst students, educators, landowners, and manager audiences. Program participants learn how to make more informed, sustainable decisions when it comes to conservation and natural resource management.
