It’s not what you think, perverts. No nude picket lines or anything like that— we’re talking about gettin’ good and organic with your activism. Whether it’s educating yourself about how to use nature’s clues to live sustainably or check out a downtown green festival or taking the whole family to Hidden Hollow’s Natural Area, this week has got something for everybody.

Biomimicry: Creating Conditions Conducive to Life
