|Ithaca College Natural Lands|
|IC Natural Lands is a representative campus group that oversees the undeveloped sections of College-owned properties on South Hill and in Newfield.|
The stated mission of the Ithaca College Natural Lands (ICNL) committee is to maintain the educational value and ecosystem services of these undeveloped College-owned properties, in order to support co-curricular activities, and to guide compatible economic and recreational development.
The Natural Lands Committee is co-chaired by Rick Couture, associate vice president for Finance and Administration - Facilities, and Jason Hamilton, assistant professor in the Biology department and Environmental Studies program. The Natural Lands Committee is a collaborative team comprised of administrators and staff from Facilities and faculty, staff, and students from a variety of academic and administrative departments.

On March 23, 2006, the Environmental Studies Capstone class presented a teach-in regarding natural and sustainable landscaping practices at Ithaca College. The students in that Capstone class went on to develop and conduct an on-line survey in Spring 2006, inviting the campus community to respond regarding its attitudes and awareness about landscaping issues, including pesticide and water usage, and use of alternative landscaping.
