Ithaca College Natural Lands
Ithaca College owns 560 acres of natural lands. Much of this forms the South Hill Natural Area-East adjacent to the college campus in Ithaca, New York. Also nearby, directly across 96B from campus, is the South Hill Natural Area-West. In neighboring Newfield we have the Bob Robinson Family Preserve and the Ithaca College Natural Resource Reserve. These natural lands are managed under the guidance of the Ithaca College Natural Lands Committee (ICNL).

Visiting the Natural Lands
South Hill Natural Areas East and West are open to the public, and our reserves in Newfield (the Bob Robinson Family Preserve and Ithaca College Natural Resource Reserve) are accessible by permission. We encourage Ithaca College students, faculty, and staff along with the general public to come and explore all that South Hill has to offer. We view the reserves as an educational working landscape and hope each student will get a chance to learn from or in the Natural Lands. We ask that visitors please respect our rules of use.
