EO Wilson visited the California Academy of Sciences and toured the living rain forest with CanopyMeg. These photos illustrate that, even as an octogenarian, EO Wilson revealed a child’s sense of wonder when he experienced the amazing biodiversity of the Cal Academy rain forest and also the 47.5 million collections.

In honor of Earth Day, why not get into nature. Schedule a “playdate” with your favorite child or adult friend, and enjoy the wonders of biodiversity. A big thanks to Ed for inspiring us all!
