Coastal land provides research opportunities - Around the Arch
June 2013 Issue
UGA will receive 15.45 acres of property near the Georgia coast to use for interdisciplinary research by faculty and graduate students in ecology, environmental history and archeology. The trustees of the Wormsloe Foundation are donating the property, 10 miles southeast of Savannah, to UGA to operate as a historical and ecological nature preserve. The donation is pending approval of an access easement by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. The property will be known as the UGA Center for Research and Education at Wormsloe. The Wormsloe parcel contains both highland and marsh land and includes a former slave cabin constructed in the 1740s. With the addition of the property, UGA plans to design and construct a $300,000 educational housing facility on the property for faculty and graduate students within the next 30 months.
