Sustainability as a format for student learning: The invasive honeysuckle project".

In Fall 2013, Maryville University created a new course in Conservation and Sustainability that focused on students writing the EPA P3: People Prosperity and Planet grant. We will present on the learning experience of the students as well as their final topic: The Honeysuckle Sustainability Project, which actively addressed the invasive species Lonicera maackii and Lonicera japonica that has overtaken the native habitat of the Maryville campus. The project created a management plan for invasive species that restores native ecosystems, reduces bio-waste through product development, and promotes community education and involvement. This plan is designed to be transferable to other invasive species and other institutions.
