Wonders of the Wetland

Over the course of 2019, ICG’s Interpretation Committee (pictured below, from fall 2019) was busy designing a WONDER-ful new educational display in the Wetlands, which – thanks to a 2019 grant from the Tompkins County Tourism Program- is finally complete!

The purpose of this project is to deepen visitor curiosity and connections to the wetlands, and engage thinking about how each of us can play in a role in stewardship of plants, animals, and ecosystems.

The water arches and were designed by Todd Edmonds of Iron Design, arches and animals were crafted by metal artisan Durand Van Doren, with illustrations by Amy Myers, and the whole process was led by Interpretation Committee Chair Sarah Fiorello, who also serves as the Interpretation Coordinator of Cornell Botanic Gardens.
