Spring is in the air, which means it is time for Springfest in the UGA Research and Education Garden. The free event returns this year on Sunday, May 1 from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic. It is open to the public and everyone is invited to come enjoy the afternoon learning about nature.
For the event, several UGA Griffin departments and local clubs will be offering information as well as hands-on activities. The Flint River Gourders will be creating colorful, dipped gourds for attendees to take home at their booth, while the Flint River Astronomy Club will have a scale solar system for viewing and offering tips on using a telescope to view the stars and planets.
