Nobody Does It Better: An Introduction to Biomimicry
July 27, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFREE
How can we build a better world with nature as our guide? Join educator Joyce Kent and learn how. There are numerous examples of how nature has had a direct impact on human life including how the way geckos climb walls gave rise to surgical bandages that are painlessly removed and robots that can search for victims, how the inspiration for Velcro came from observing the spurs of a cocklebur, and studying how giraffes get blood to their heads helps us design spacesuits. No registration required.
Year round, Sheldrake Environmental Center offers monthly guided Neighborhood Nature walks; in the springtime join us for compost bin sales and workshops, along with Earth Day clean-ups; and in the fall, we have our Fall Festival and International Coastal Clean Up.
