UGA is growing all over, challenging its grounds department to landscape new areas and renovate old ones in a beautiful, low-maintenance, environmentally friendly campus.
The tour will visit some of the newly renovated areas, showing which plants worked and which didn't on different areas. It will detail the seasonal color program's successes and failures. And it will reveal the challenges of installing a few of the new areas.
Great for Landscapers
Especially valuable to landscape professionals, the tour will provide a chance to visit with industry co-workers, share information and gain ideas.
Registration will start at 8 a.m. at the Miller Plant Science Building. After a brief orientation in the botany auditorium at 9 a.m., the tour will begin, rain or shine. Wear comfortable clothes and walking shoes.
A $25 fee covers bus transportation and lunch. Register by May 14. To sign up or learn more about the tour, call (706) 542-2861.
