Tour the Lab of Ornithology
The Cornell Lab of Ornithology is a world leader in the study, appreciation, and conservation of birds. Its hallmarks are scientific excellence and technological innovation to advance the understanding of nature and to engage people of all ages in learning about birds and protecting the planet.
Here inside the Johnson Center for Birds and Biodiversity, people explore the intricacies of DNA, delve into the world’s largest archive of animal sounds and videos, teach hands-on research techniques to students, engineer new technologies to study wildlife, analyze hundreds of thousands of data-records from citizen-science participants, and create websites to share the beauty and scientific knowledge of birds with millions of people.How do they do this?
This Behind-the-Scenes tour of the Lab will provide an overview of the history of the Lab, a look at the exhibits in the Visitor Center; a peak into the Cornell Museum of Vertebrates, and a description of the various departments and sciences studied at the Lab. The tour will showcase the art collection at the Lab, including a Maya Lin sculpture, two stunning murals, and some of the 1000 works of art.
