I'm often asked for some

John Himmelman is an author, illustrator, and naturalist. He has written and illustrated many books, most for children, but a few for adults on various natural history subjects. He has served on a number of environmental boards and commissions over the years, including president of the New Haven Bird Club, the CT Butterfly Association (which he cofounded), and the Killingworth Land Conservation Trust. John has led many trips afield in search of exciting flora and fauna and has given his presentations throughout the country. His talks began as a vehicle to share stories about the mountain of photographs he's amassed, and that hasn't changed...  He lives in Killingworth, CT with his wife, a potter.
