Biomimicry Prairie Walk

Mark your calendars! We are excited to celebrate fall with a biomimicry walk on the prairie - Thursday, September 25th. 6pm on the grounds of the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum

Fall is a gorgeous time for a walk in the prairie, so let's get outside and explore our native prairie ecosystem through a biomimicry lens! Biomimicry, the practice of learning from nature to solve human problems, is emerging as a powerful tool for creating sustainable design and systemic transformation. Applied at a variety of scales, from individual products to buildings and organizations, biomimicry brings nature's 3.8 billion years of innovation experience to the table to redefine sustainable innovation.

Weather permitting, join local biomimic, Amy Coffman Phillips, and Interpretive Naturalist, Cheryl McGarry, for an inspirational guided tour of the grounds at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Center with an informal networking event afterward.
