Dr. Wendy Zomlefer has been awarded a UGA Public Service and Outreach Fellowship for fall 2015. Wendy is Curator of UGA’s Herbarium and has been actively involved with outreach activities across the state. This fellowship will provide an opportunity for Wendy to refocus her educational outreach activities on the State Botanical Garden, thereby building a bridge between these two facilities that are naturally aligned through their educational missions of promoting plants and plant collections.
