Event Details

The Bay Area Biomimicry Network is swarming! Join us Wednesday, October 9 for an up-and-close look at some of nature's most beautiful design. Colleagues and friends are encouraged to join. 


Biomimicry Treasure Hunt

This month, we will be hunting for biomimicry-inspiring plants at the San Franciso Conservatory of Flowers, and use the treasures we find for a hands on exploration of nature's brilliance. For instance, one challenge may be to find the Victorian Orchid within the Conservatory, and then discuss which of nature's strategies that species thrives at; another may be to discover a plant that excels by "integrating the unexpected", "fitting form to function", or using other design lessons from natureJane Scurich from the Conservatory will help facilitate.

This event is especially suited for those who are brand new to biomimicry, including young students and their parents. It will be facilitated by Deb Grove of the Conservatory and the BABN team. 

Food and drink are supported by our members. When registering, please consider selecting a $5 or $10 donation ticket and help biomimicry flourish in the Bay Area.
