Federal wildlife officials want a plant they say is found only in Georgia and Alabama to be classified as "threatened." The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service says it is seeking the designation for the Georgia rockcress. The plant has been a candidate for listing as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act since 2000.
Thanks to some donors honoring the memory of loved ones who were passionate gardeners, Brenau (Breh-NOW) University in Gainesville has a new greenhouse. It is allowing the University to expand it’s efforts to save endangered plants in Georgia.
