Catie Ryan to Speak at the Oregon Zoo

ILFI’s summer speaker series is headed to the Oregon Zoo! Terrapin’s Catie Ryan will speak alongside an expert panel exploring how biophilic design can re-establish our relationship with the natural world. Panelists will help to contextualize this important issue with current research and pioneering design case studies, but the real context will come from the diverse animal community so graciously hosting this event. What better way to internalize this important relationship than by experiencing the joy and awe of up close interactions with some of the most unique animals from around the world.
