Lockerly Arboretum makes a wonderful day trip to visit in Milledgeville, Georgia. It's just south of town and Rose Hill ( built in 1839) is a beautiful mansion filled with period furnishings. There are trails, picnic tables near the pond to bring a picnic and plenty of trails to enjoy a walk.
They have a mission statement:
To provide outstanding ecological, horticultural and historical education in order to promote preservation and stewardship of the environment, by fostering an understanding of and an appreciation for the natural world.
I can get behind that statement. They offer school field trip opportunties, a wonderful wedding venue, meeting spaces for a company retreat and much more. Hours are 8:30 to 4:30 Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday. For information about scheduled events, please check our calendar. Teachers and civic groups interested in field trip visits should contact our Director of Education, Greg Eilers, at email@example.com or call 478.452.2112 x 224. For information about the gardens, contact our Director of Horticulture, Jana Otis, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 478.452.2112 x 223.
