The students of the 2018 Landscapes and Geomorphology class were tasked to identify an area that was easy access from Atlanta and would provide rich examples of both cultural landscape and geomorphic processes from a geographic perspective. Attempts were made to delineate the region by formal, functional, and administrative means and during the course it was identified the Northeast Georgia Region as shown above (in red) best captured the human and natural landscapes we wished to explore. This region encompasses parts of both Georgia and North Carolina including Habersham, Lumpkin, Rabun, Stephens, Towns, Union, and White Counties. The focus areas identified above (in orange) were explored by all the students in early April 2018 over the course of three days in order to provide examples to their individual papers, field journal, and the field guides available here.
