Educators! The following resources are available to help you teach your students about invasive species. For more information, contact Liz Duff.
Lessoning Loosestrife - This curriculum was designed for elementary to high school level students to help teach about wetlands, invasive species, and about using biocontrol beetles as a tool for controlling a wetland invader, purple loosestrife.
Salt Marsh Science Project - Since 1996, students in grades 5 - 12 on the North Shore have been working with Mass Audubon scientists to learn exciting and important information about salt marshes and Phragmites australis (common reed), an invasive plant that grows in salt marshes.
The Invasive Plant Ecology Curriculum focuses on several invaders you most likely have seen in your city. This resource focuses on some top invaders found on our roadsides and wetlands.
