Groundbreaking for the UGA Center for Research and Education
Wormsloe Plantation, Savannah
The trustees of the Wormsloe Foundation donated the property, which is located 10 miles southeast of Savannah at 7601 Skidaway Road, for use by the UGA College of Environment and Design and other UGA colleges and units. The property will be used for interdisciplinary research by faculty and graduate students working in ecology, environmental history and archeology. UGA will operate the property as a historical and ecological nature preserve for scientific, historical, educational and aesthetic purposes in keeping with the natural and historic character of the property.
