State Botanical Garden of Georgia

The State Botanical Garden of Georgia is a 313-acre preserve set aside by the University of Georgia in 1968 for the study and enjoyment of plants and nature. The garden is a "living laboratory" serving teaching, research, public service, and outreach missions for the University of Georgia and the citizens of Georgia. The garden contains a wide variety of natural features and includes plant communities and habitats common to the Georgia Piedmont. The Garden con­tains a num­ber of spe­cial­ized (theme) gar­dens and col­lec­tions, over five miles of nature trails, and four major facil­i­ties includ­ing a trop­i­cal conser­va­tory.

The mis­sion of the Garden is to acquire and dis­sem­i­nate Botanical knowl­edge and to fos­ter appre­ci­a­tion, under­s­tand­ing and ste­ward­ship of plants and nature through col­lec­tions and dis­plays, hor­ti­cul­tu­ral gar­dens, research, edu­ca­tio­nal pro­grams, exhi­bi­tions and spe­cial events.
