Biomimicry

Looking at Nature as Model, Measure, and Mentor

Consciously emulating Nature’s genius means viewing and valuing the natural world differently. In biomimicry, we look at Nature as model, mentor, and measure.
Model:  Biomimicry is a new science that studies Nature’s models and then emulates these forms, processes, systems, and strategies to solve human problems – sustainably.
Mentor:  Biomimicry is a new way of viewing and valuing nature. It introduces an era based not on what we can extract from the natural world, but what we can learn from it.
Measure:  Biomimicry uses an ecological standard to judge the sustainability of our innovations. After 3.8 billion years of evolution, Nature has learned what works and what lasts. (excerpt from www.asknature.org )

One  of  the  things I love about living in  this area is that there is so much  to do. I  came  from  a  very  small, quiet  town on  the east coast  and now,sometimes there are too  many  choices.

Tonight, you could go to  the  local  silent film  Museum – where they  are  showing a  Talking Picture!

This Sunday in Niles you can hear a great , free concert and this time around there will be some fabulous food trucks including The Sweet Bakery and the fiveten burger .

This lecture on Monday at the library Looks interesting
