Floriculture Department War Memorial

The Floriculture Department War Memorial in the Cornell Botanic Gardens Arboretum commemorates Floriculture students who were killed in WWI and WWII.  The bench located there provides a quiet place for reflection. The Floriculture Memorial was also featured on page 9 of the Spring/Summer 2011 edition of Verdant Views, the Magazine of Cornell Botanic Garden. The bench is located on the Johnston Trail (between Forest Home Drive and Arboretum Road) just below the second parking area as you enter Arboretum Road. See the Botanic Garden Trail map.

Just across the path from the bench there is also a plaque which lists the Floriculture students who died in World War I and II.
