A quick reminder...

Before you go down a rabbit hole of links, let us remind you to go outside too! Biomimicry offers a whole new way of seeing the world around you. Practice sitting quietly in nature and observing with a curious mind.

  • What do you notice about the plants and animals in your area?
  • What relationships do you see?
  • What patterns? It's amazing what can be revealed to you when you really start to look.
