From Surprise to Inspiration: Using Biomimicry to Explore Unfamiliar New Worlds
Whether traveling on vacation, visiting friends or relocating across the country, many of us have experienced the joys of exploring exciting new habitats.
Join Dayna Baumeister, director of the ASU Biomimicry Center, to learn how we can use a biomimicry lens to understand and learn from the unfamiliar ecologies we find ourselves in. In a personal journey of discovery, Baumeister takes participants on a field trip into her own new habitat in the Pacific Northwest and describes the ways in which the practice of biomimicry has helped her become acquainted with some of her new plant and animal neighbors.
Nature@Noon is a series of workshops that explores the collection of ASU’s new NatureMaker library and its potential to inspire sustainable innovation. NatureMaker is a collaboration between the Biomimicry Center and the ASU Library.
