Spring has sprung!

Biomimicry Oregon folks got out for a couple of walks recently. First, we walked the Oak Island Trail on Sauvie Island… which is actually now a biomimicry trail, courtesy of 7th graders at Sauvie Island Academy, Portland State University Capstone students and Sauvie Island Wildlife Area (ODFW).

We stood 20′ below an occupied bald eagle nest, and explored ideas like mimicking bird legs to earthquake-proof buildings! So, put on your hiking boots, load a QR scanner app on your smartphone, head out to learn from the critters that make Sauvie Island their home!

We also hiked Powell Butte with The Biomimicry Institute staff, who were in town for a strategic planning retreat. Come join us on future hikes!
