PASEO 2019 Education and Engagement Partner
What magic lies beneath our feet? Come explore the wUNDER of nature’s hidden connections with Twirl!
In 2019, as The Paseo turns its focus towards connections, Twirl will explore the connectedness of the natural world from the (under)ground up. What magic lies beneath our feet? What we perceive is only the tippy top of a vast network of invisible connections that create and support life, including our own. We will dig deep and discover the mystery of mycelium, the earth’s largest living thing, and the fungi that grow from it. Create, play and become a part of this complex and extraordinary system. Join your community in an awe-inspiring and artful expedition into the nature of connectivity, as the Twirl courtyard comes alive with wUNDER!
