Phipps Conservatory & Botanical Gardens Hosts Biophilia: Pittsburgh Oct. 5

The Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens will host Biophilia: Pittsburgh reflections on the Gaia hypothesis and strengthening the bond between people and the natural world on October 5 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Center for Sustainable Landscapes.
The program will feature Dr. John Stolz, professor of microbiology and director of the Center for Environmental Research and Education program at Duquesne University, who will lead the discussion, "Gaia — Reflections on Turning 50."
The Gaia hypothesis, authored by James Lovelock 50 years ago, proposed that the Earth’s biota (all living things) interact with the atmosphere, the planet’s waters and the crust, to create a life support system that maintains the long-term habitability of the planet.
The event will take place in the Center for Sustainable Landscapes at the Phipps Conservatory, One Schenley Park, Pittsburgh.  A networking session will be held from 5:30 to 6:00 p.m., presentations from 6:00 to 6:30 and discussion from 6:30 to 7:30.
Biophilia: Pittsburgh is the pilot chapter for a Biophilia Network dedicated to strengthening the bond between people and the natural world through education, discussion and action.
