Speaker: Kim White

What does a Bur have in common with NASA? A Kingfisher with a high speed train? In this fascinating talk, Kim will show you many examples of when science and technology looked to nature to solve complex problems. Animal ambassadors: Axelotl, Dart Frog, Crested Gecko and hedgehog will accompany. This talk has received rave reviews every time it has been presented.

Kim has had a lifelong interest in the natural world. She spent 19 years associated with Brookfield Zoo’s Education Department as both a volunteer and employee teaching school groups. She is a master naturalist, a co-steward for the DuPage County Forest Preserve, education coordinator for the DuPage Monarch Project and avid gardener for both food production and habitat creation. Her summers are spent growing milkweed for the Monarch butterflies she raises from eggs and releases.
