Program Description

Naturalist Kim White, with live animals in tow, joins us for a talk on how the natural world has helped solve human problems. How did a Kingfisher improve a high-speed train? How has a gecko helped astronauts? How do hedgehogs reduce the chances of concussion? These examples and many more will be discussed. Brought to you in partnership with the River Forest Township.
