Eco-Design and Education in Our National Parks
With Seeking Symbiosis in the Parks, our goal is to increase science literacy around biodiversity loss by focusing on key research that is currently underway at our national parks. We aim to inspire stewardship through education and by linking science with art through our sustainable clothing designs at Seeking Symbiosis. This outreach will be augmented through partnerships with national park educational interpreters and providing them with a tailored eco-art educational package (prints, curriculum describing the research, animation, and sustainable actions). Our curriculum can be used to describe the research inspiring the artwork that is ongoing in their park during public tours and info sessions and then direct people to the park gift shop if they’d like to purchase apparel.
