State Botanical Garden of Georgia

State Botanical Garden of Georgia

The State Botanical Garden of Georgia is a 313-acre preserve set aside by The University of Georgia to foster appreciation, understanding, and stewardship of plants and nature through collections and displays, horticultural gardens, educational programs, and research. The Garden is a "living laboratory," a vital resource for the teaching, research, and public service missions of the University.

Georgia's flora is among the most diverse in the U.S. Various climatic zones and soil types support an amazing array of species, many of which can be found at the Garden. A number of introduced and exotic species also abound in the theme gardens and collections in the conservatory.

As a university botanical garden, education is the Garden's primary focus. Plant conservation, habitat protection, and biodiversity are but a few topics embraced and furthered by the Garden. Visitors also come for recreation, social interaction, and simply to experience the beauty of nature. Whatever your reason, we hope that you will enjoy your visit and that you will return soon.
