Diane Lang has been sharing nature with children for the last 15 years—teaching classes, working with raptors such as hawks and owls, leading walks, and writing poems and short plays about animals and the world they live in. She volunteers at three nature centers in California and has written several picture books. Diane loves all animals, wild and domestic. Her pets have included rats, birds, a snake, and many dogs, plus the puppies she raised for a guide dog school. Right now she and her husband share their home with two dogs, two tortoises, and two very sweet tarantulas. She also loves to design activities that make learning about nature fun.
