About the Book

About the Author

Willem Larsen
Willem Larsen

For 15 years Willem designed cutting-edge learning tools for all ages in the natural sciences—at the Oregon Zoo, OMSI, Tryon Creek State Park, and the Eddy Foundation Land Trust. He was a founding partner of Cascadia Wild!, a founding member of TrackersNW, and a former partner at "Where Are Your Keys?" co-developing the approach that led to the craft of Language Hunting.

Willem believes that languages, traditions, and skills are treasures that communities hold as a whole—only by learning together can we create the rich lives we want for each other.

Willem Larsen is Creative Director of Language Hunters, a 501(c)(3) non-profit based in Portland, OR.
