Tales for the Earth

A Celebration of Nature and all the simple things we can do to help. Tales for the Earth is a beloved performance that is both educational and entertaining. It explores topics such as Water Conservation, Recycling and Wildlife Protection. Like all of Diane’s programs, the performance is tailored to suit each specific audience. Depending on the age range stories may include: What Now, Cloacina?, Diane’s hilarious water conservation story about a water sprite who travels through the sewage system in search of her pond. What shines through the entire presentation is a love and respect for our place in nature; with many ideas communicated about how we can create a difference.
