Classroom Resources for Teachers

We are excited to collaborate with teachers, students, and art curators around the world to build “swamp literacy” around the vital role these wetlands play in our lives. Critical to our notion of swamp literacy is environmental justice and an understanding of how gender, race, and class inequities are exacerbated by unsustainable development and climate change.

By sharing in a collective discovery about the vital role of swamps with school communities around the world, we will inspire a new generation of artists, scientists, writers, engineers, and advocates to play their role as environmental stewards.
