Cuvilly Ecojustice Network
Cuvilly has expanded its programming to include the Ecojustice Education Network. This expansion provides educational opportunities for youth and adults to help address the current ecological crises of climate change and biodiversity loss.
Cuvilly is in the process of developing ecojustice curricula beginning with “Landscaping for Biodiversity” based on Professor Douglas Tallamy’s book Nature’s Best Hope. Dr. Tallamy, University of Delaware Chair for Entomology and Wildlife Ecology, is responding to a rapidly declining pollinator population by proposing the Homegrown National Park. Home - Homegrown National Park
With Tallamy’s blessing we are developing a six-module curriculum complete with the experiential learning needed for students to establish pollinator gardens appropriate to their geographical region. At the same time, they will be learning a great deal about ecosystem balance. Through engaging multimedia experiences, students learn content at their own pace putting that knowledge to the test during Group Critical Thinking discussions. Importantly, the learners will also get their hands dirty as they develop the skills to build their own wildlife corridors for bees, a variety of insects, and birds.
