Lessoning Loosestrife - Teacher Training

Lessoning Loosestrife is curriculum designed for elementary - 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. Our aim is to not only teach lessons about loosestrife and key ecological concepts, but also to lessen the impact of this invader, while developing and reinforcing a stewardship ethic in students. This program will teach you monitoring techniques as well as how to rear beetles.
