Spring “Break” at UGAMI

As university campuses across the country pause for spring break, teaching and research activities at UGAMI ramp-up.  Faculty and students from universities all over the U.S. take advantage of the break in the normal class schedule to come to UGAMI to conduct research or to bring their classes on extended field trips.  March is one of the busiest months in the UGAMI calendar.  Visiting faculty and students from northern latitudes use this time as an opportunity to learn, while thawing-out at the end of a long winter.

Any university faculty members interested in leading a field trip or initiating a research project at UGAMI can contact our Program Coordinator, Gracie Townsend.

Spring flowers on Sapelo Island are in full bloom from late February through March.
