SCP and the St. Thomas Pollinator Path have a multi-year partnership to enrich the ecological and educational value of the pollinator path for St. Thomas and the broader community through course-based partnerships across disciplines.
The Pollinator Path transforms parts of campus into an open-air lab for observing pollinators in action and enriching pollinator habitat. Anyone can walk it, from campus visitors, students, neighbors, and students on field trips.
This Spring 2019, courses in Biology and Engineering will apply their ecological and engineering design knowledge to create interactive activity guides and designs for experiential engagement, in partnership with local artists: SCP Artist-in-Residence Sarah Nelson and SCP Collaborating artist Jessica Turtle.
St. Thomas River Corridor Walk Project & The Earth’s Record of Climate (GEOL 162) | Creating the St. Thomas River Corridor Walk | Kevin Theissen
SCP Arts is collaborating with Kevin Theissen in the Department of Geology to design and construct a “River Corridor Walk” that highlights the geology and ecology in our location along the Mississippi River Gorge and in greater Minnesota. The River Corridor will have multiple interpretive installations that combine science and art to increase the St. Thomas community’s literacy about local geology and geologic history.
The River Corridor Walk project is led by Dr. Theissen and will be funded by the CAS SOLV Initiative. SCP Arts is partnering to facilitate the integration of the River Corridor into course-based, arts-based projects through which students apply what they are learning to develop interpretive content, in collaboration with local artists.
