Thursday 10/15 Hear Luncheon Speaker
Dayna Baumeister, Ph.D.

Specializing in dynamics of positive interactions among animal and plant life with a background in biology, a devotion to applied natural history, and a passion for sharing the wonders of nature with others, Dayna has worked in the field of Biomimicry since 1998 as an educator, researcher, and design consultant. As co-founder and keystone for the Biomimicry Guild, Dayna acts as the liaison between all members of the Guild. In addition, she brings her skills as a systems thinker and organic communicator to her dynamic workshops, presentations, seminars, and exhibits, which have introduced the idea of nature as model, measure, and mentor to thousands of designers, business managers, and engineers around the country.

Luncheon Topic-
Biomimicry and the Built Environment: Creating Conditions Conducive to Life

Biomimicry – the process of finding sustainable ideas by emulating nature – is finding a home in companies, universities, and organizations throughout the world. Our ability to borrow life’s blueprints is on the rise, and so is the need for more elegant, energy-efficient and nontoxic designs. It’s no wonder that companies are inviting “biologists to the design table,” giving the next generation of designers, biologists, architects, and engineers a new place to look for answers. Dr. Dayna Baumeister will present some of the latest technologies inspired by nature that help bring humans closer to sustainable living.
