Peabody Park Across the Curriculum

[Long-bristled Smartweed]PEABODY PARK was established in 1901 as UNCG’s educational park, and it has served the academic and recreational interests of the institution for nearly a century. While faculty in the sciences—especially biology and geography—have made use of the Park’s educational resources for decades, faculty members in other departments may not realize that there are many ways they can make use of the Park in their teaching. This page presents a collection of ideas on how the Park may be incorporated into teaching across the campus in ways that are expected and ways that are surprising.

Because the Departments of Biology and Geography already make extensive use of the Park in their teaching, specific recommendations for those two departments are not included here. All other departments are listed alphabetically. General information about the Park that will be helpful in preparing class exercises is available on the Peabody Park page and its seasonal attachments, and specific information about the animals and plants of the Park is available on the Biological Survey page.
