The Cornell Botanic Gardens natural areas consist of 4,000 acres of ecologically important sites on and off campus, available for research, education, hiking, and nature study, in support of the educational mission of Cornell University.
Six mowing treatments produced some notable differences in vegetation in nine years. Summer vs. Fall mowing, mowing every year, every other year or every third year were the six treatments. Summer mowing every year produced a more grassy meadow; the other treatments produced a more goldenrod-dominated meadow.
