Make a Gift to Support the Garden!
Please join us in making an all-important gift to the Climate Change Garden. We are seeking gifts that will support a fulltime education coordinator to maintain field instrumentation and assist in climate change coursework and public outreach activities as well as provide scholarships and funding sources for student researchers. We also seek support for purchasing field equipment to measure environmental conditions and physiological responses of trees to climatic variation and global warming for research and education purposes.
Every gift counts! Visit Cuse Funder to make a Donation.
By supporting the study of climate change, you’re investing in the future of the world as we know it. Every dollar is like a seed that, when properly planted and nourished, will bear untold possibilities...one tree at a time.
Volunteering and Internship Opportunities
The Climate Change Project offer research opportunities in the areas of:
- Data collection, analysis, and archival.
- Website maintenance and other outreach tasks.
- Participation in Arboretum-focused curricula.
Annual data collection activities will be part of the educational focus of the Arboretum, and will include plant health and performance measurements, including the timing of leaf emergence and senescence, stem growth, flowering times, root growth, insect/herbivore activities, pathogen monitoring, among other activities.
For details about open positions for credit internships, volunteering or FSW eligible work-study, please contact us.
For other research opportunities, visit Biology at SU.

The Climate Change Education Arboretum is located on the grounds surrounding the Life Sciences Complex on the Syracuse University campus.
Interested in Climate Change?
Scientists expect Central New York’s climate to more closely resemble that of South Carolina by the end of this century, and ecologists have long warned that our local forests of sugar maple and basswood may gradually change to the drier oak-hickory forests of the U.S. South and Midwest.
