Nature is Nurture at History Museum

If Mom told you once, she told you a thousand times: "Go outside and play!" Well, according to Yale University's Dr. Stephen R. Kellert, Mom was onto something. The professor emeritus will lecture tonight about the theory of biophilia, or how our need for nature influences our experience, learning, and culture. He'll also talk about biophilic design — a building strategy that incorporates nature into architecture, creating positive connections between people and the great outdoors — and will examine the impact of letting kids linger on their laptops instead of sending them outside to get muddy. The lecture, part of the museum's Explorer Series, begins at 7:30 in the Murch Auditorium; however, doors open at 5:30 with live music and a chance to explore the museum's galleries and exhibitions. General admission is $10, less for members, students, and seniors. The Cleveland Museum of Natural History is at 1 Wade Oval Drive in University Circle.
