About CAES: Secondary Organizations

Georgia Mountain Research & Education Center

The Georgia Mountain Research and Education Center is located 3 miles south of Blairsville, Ga. on Hwy 19/129 in the North Georgia Mountains. The station grounds cover 415 acres of orchards, test plots, pasture land, specimen and preservation gardens, historic sites and forests.

The GMRE Center is unique to the University of Georgia system because of its location at the southern end of the Appalachian Mountains and its growing season which is similar to southern Canada. The center is used by UGA faculty to conduct ongoing research and education projects.

In addition, the Community Council of the Georgia Mountain Research and Education Center provides monthly adult education programs as well as environmental education programs for children and youth in Fannin, Union and Towns counties in Georgia, as well as Cherokee and Clay counties in North Carolina.
