Check here each month to find out which features of the State Botanical Garden are truly stunning.
As a Public Service and Outreach unit of the University of Georgia, the Botanical Garden provides the public of all ages and UGA faculty and students opportunities for recreation, events, research and learning through its natural areas, display gardens and building spaces. With your help, the Garden can continue to grow and provide unique experiences for everyone!
The State Botanical Garden will operate on a modified schedule for the Labor Day Holiday. The Grounds will be open from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm on Monday, September 7th. During these hours, our Visitor Center, Giftshop, and Cafe will be closed, but the grounds will remain open. We will resume normal operating hours on Tuesday, September 8th.
Thanks to the students of the Geography lab 1111, the trails and gardens in the State Botanical Gardens of Athens, GA were mapped and published on Google Maps! The following students were involved in the mapping project: Kristin Bradshaw, Kathryn Craw, Calen Dennis, Robert Dickinson, Samuel Evans, Devyn Gaton, Mark Hammond, Patricia Kirkpatrick, Katherine Kitziger, Aaron Shelton, Rodney Soares, Ashley Thompson, and Songpei Yang. The instructor of the lab was Genevieve Holdridge, and field assistance from Brandon Adams was much appreciated. Thanks to Mr. William Tonks, the Director of Visitor Services for the permission to work in the gardens, and for his support!
This Year we will be having our Gold in your Garden Symposium at Gwinnett Tech with Keynote Speaker Alan Armitage!
