Friends of the Gardens
Waddell Barnes, M.D., a supporter and avid horticulturalist, led a successful effort to transform the University’s existing landscape into a lush showcase for hundreds of varieties of regional flora and fauna. In 2003, the Board of Regents officially designated the Macon Campus the Waddell Barnes Botanical Gardens, which are a delight and inspiration for students, visitors and gardeners.
As a friend of the Waddell Barnes Botanical Gardens, you will be able to
- Enjoy one free guided walking tour of the 17 themed gardens
- Support one of Georgia’s leading botanical gardens in its education, horticultural and conservation work
- Receive invitations to special events on campus and lectures given by specialists in their field
- Be encouraged to get more involved through volunteering
