About the author


Peggy Dickerson ~ Author (also, see the Illustrator bio, below)

Peggy Dickerson was born on the North Fork of Long Island. Her passion and expertise in the natural world is a result of a childhood immersed in nature and inspired by her legendary father, Paul Stoutenburgh. This led her to pursue a career in teaching. She taught at the Cutchogue East Elementary School for thirty years. During her years of teaching, she developed a variety of curriculums that highlighted the local environment, teaching children about the local flora and fauna and the variety of habitats on the east end of Long Island. Her article, "Living Off the Land," which was published in the journal, Science and Children, describes how to integrate local natural history into the school syllabus. Peggy was elected as a Southold Town Trustee—a government position to approve shoreline development with the specific mandate to preserve the shorelines. Peggy has taught undergraduate education students for Long Island University at Suffolk Community College in Riverhead, NY. She and her husband Bob have two children and five grandchildren. Her love of nature continues to be passed on as she teaches the same respect and awe of nature to the next generation of children.
