Research at Warnell

Warnell is a leader in cutting-edge research in natural resources that improve our world. Our extensive facilities allow for research in labs or outdoors at Whitehall Forest, an 840-acre site 5 miles from the UGA campus containing forests, fish ponds, greenhouses, and additional lab space.

Warnell also works with a wide network of partner organizations, both on campus and with organizations and institutions elsewhere, which allows faculty and students to expand the scope of their work and expertise.
