Appalachian Studies Center

Welcome to the state-designated center for the study of Georgia’s beautiful mountain region! The Appalachian Studies Center (ASP) at the University of North Georgia (UNG) is headquartered in a charming folk Victorian home known as the Historic Vickery House.


Special Events

Friday, August 23, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

On Friday, August 23 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., the Appalachian Studies Center and College of Education will host a citizen science project in partnership with the University of Georgia, the Georgia Mountain Master Gardeners, and the Lumpkin County Extension Service. Every hour on the hour, you are invited to to count pollinators at the gardens of the Historic Vickery House. A UNG entomologist will be on hand to help you identify the eight categories of pollinating insects. No registration required. (The state-wide pollinator census also continues through Saturday, August 24, but the census at the Historic Vickery House will only be held on Friday.) For more more information about the state-wide census, see The Great Georgia Pollinator Census.
