Beatrix Potter

On July 28, 1866, English author Beatrix Potter was born. Although she is best remembered for writing and illustrating the children’s book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, Potter was also a passionate conservationist. Throughout her life, she purchased many pieces of land to help preserve the English country landscape. Today, much of that land now comprises the Lake District National Park.
