Whether traveling on vacation, visiting friends or relocating across the country, many of us have experienced the joys of exploring exciting new habitats.

Join Biomimicry Center Director Dayna Baumeister 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.

Dayna Baumeister is director of the Biomimicry Center at Arizona State University. Since 1998 she has worked with biomimicry thought leader Janine Benyus as a business catalyst, educator, researcher and design consultant. Together they founded the Biomimicry Guild, The Biomimicry Institute and Biomimicry 3.8. Baumeister designed and teaches in the worldʼs first MS in Biomimicry as a Professor of Practice at ASU, cofounded The Biomimicry Center at ASU and compiled more than 20 years of experience in biomimicry into the Biomimicry Resource Handbook: A Seed Bank of Knowledge and Best Practices (2013).

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.
