50/10 EVENTS

The Odum School of Ecology is hosting special events to celebrate our 50th Anniversary.


2017 is a momentous year for us: We will celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Odum School of Ecology and the 50th anniversary of our precursor, the Institute of Ecology. We are planning a year-long series of events including exhibits, lectures and an alumni reunion and symposium dedicated to exploring the future of ecology informed by our rich history.




The Odum School of Ecology invites the Odum Community to share their photographs and stories about their experiences at the University of Georgia. Photographs and stories will be displayed on the webpage and a slide show during the Alumni Reunion. In order to share photographs you may use our hashtag #odum5010 or submit the photos below.
