You Can Help

The work being done at the Coastal Plain Research Arboretum (CPRA) is made possible through the support of both state and federal units at the Tifton Campus. The Garden Clubs of Georgia have special projects which are designated for the arboretum. However, the CPRA has limited funds and completion of projects and continued maintenance of the site will require donations from individuals, businesses, and foundations. Please consider including a gift in your estate plan to the University of Georgia Foundation for the benefit of the Coastal Plain Research Arboretum Development Fund.

The arboretum is a valuable resource for the Tifton area and will attract the support of a wide range of individuals and organizations in Georgia and the southeast.
