Cortland's mission is to make nature a part of every person's life. Therefore, it has created the Lime Hollow Center for Environment and Culture. This center provides environmental education for everyone in the Cortland community, hosting a variety of programs and camps to get students thinking about nature and the Earth around them. It also features many public programs and recreational opportunities to show people the importance of the Lime Hollow habitat. These include a Spring Fishing Festival, Snake Night, ArtFest, and Creatures of the Night. Lime Hollow also offers 10 miles of walking trails for those looking to view the local wildlife.
