Wisconsin to Develop Purple Loosestrife Bio-Control Curriculum

Wisconsin to Develop Purple Loosestrife Bio-Control Curriculum

Ten teachers will participate in an August workshop with the DNR’s state purple loosestrife bio-control coordinator, Brock Woods, to develop a set of curricular activities for Wisconsin schools. Using existing activities from Michigan and Illinois as models, the programs for Wisconsin will be designed and modified to meet state standards for science and environmental education for grades 6-12. The workshop, coordinated by Wisconsin Wetlands Association, is funded by an environmental education grant from the Environmental Protection Agency.
