We are looking forward to our Experience UGA trips for the semester! Choose the date and school that work best for you. If all spots are filled, choose another trip.
Trip Description: The first grade students will learn about personal safety with regard to medicines, poisonous plants, and poisonous animals. Students will also learn about the basic needs of plants and animals. This trip is hosted with the College of Pharmacy, the College of Forestry, and the UGA Trial Gardens.
