More than 200 people attended the Dedication Ceremony and Open House at the new Mary Kahrs Warnell Center near Savannah on November 7. Effingham County School Superintendent Dr. Michael Moore spoke about the Centers educational value, and Effingham County Manager David Rutherford discussed its community benefits. Mary Warnell, granddaughter of Mary Kahrs Warnell, talked about the familys history and long affiliation with both forestry and education in the Savannah area.
Warnell School of Forest Resources Dean Arnett C. Mace, Jr. dedicated the Center on behalf of the University of Georgia Foundation. A ribbon-cutting ceremony and reception were held outside following the program.
The Mary Kahrs Warnell Forest Education Center, completed in August, provides programs about forest ecosystems and sustainable forest management. It is located within the 3,300 acre Dorothy Warnell Research, Education and Demonstration Forest. The Center is named in honor of Mary Kahrs Warnell, wife of Daniel B. Warnell and the mother of five children, including sisters Dorothy, who died in 1996 and Carolyn Warnell Bryan, who deeded the land for both the forest and the Center.
