Visit the Liberty Hyde Bailey Conservatory, NOW!

For those that can't make the trip out to Ithica currently, click on the title link for a short video tour of the Liberty Hyde Bailey Conservatory with Cornell plant biologist Ed Cobb.
    In 1935, Bailey donated his herbarium and its library to Cornell University: "Call it an Hortorium... A repository for things of the garden — a place for the scientific study of garden plants, their documentation, their classification, and their naming." This conservatory became the major U. S. center for the systematics of cultivated plants. Enjoy!
