NSU University School Sophomore Helps Start New Butterfly Garden

Duncan Jurman and Ms. Chana Goodman

Duncan Jurman and Ms. Chana Goodman

NSU University School’s latest student-driven project that benefits the entire school is our butterfly garden and vivarium. They are located just outside of the Middle School but all NSU University School students in grades junior kindergarten through 12th grade will have the opportunity to experience and interact with the garden and vivarium throughout the school year.

This project started as an idea and passion of one of our 10th grade students, Duncan Jurman. He took his interest in the environment and worked under the guidance of Ms. Chana Goodman, NSU University School Upper School Science teacher, to bring this garden to life.

Jurman has maintained his own butterfly gardens since he was four years old. He has enjoyed educating other students about the impact butterflies have on our ecosystem since he was in 4th grade here at NSU University School. Now, as a sophomore he has planted about 20 plant species in our new garden on campus. Those plants have already attracted more than 10 different kinds of butterflies, including endangered species.

Thanks to Jurman’s initiative and efforts in creating this hands-on educational resource for all NSU University School students to enjoy, teachers at all grade levels will be able to incorporate the butterfly garden and the vivarium into their class curriculum.
