Function Junction-Biomimicry in Nature @ Brumley North
Aug 27 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am

Join TLC Trail Guide, Leigh, in exploring nature in a different way!

Every plant and animal has fascinating characteristics or traits to help it survive in the place it lives. We will explore Brumley North searching for different organisms’ adaptations in order to examine specific structures, behaviors and processes that will reveal how nature problem-solves. Collaboratively, we will look for and describe nature’s various functions, then consider how some of those functions can be used to help humans solve real-world problems. This program is aimed towards rising 6th-9th graders, but the whole family is welcome to join.
