Brian K Lang Aquatic Memorial Fund

Brian K. Lang was an American Biologist, born January 29, 1958 in Indiana, USA. Mr. Lang died tragically, along with his neighbor, Christopher Holland, on March 1, 2017, while trying to rescue his dog from an irrigation ditch at high water, near his home along the Old Route 66, just north of Bernalillo, New Mexico.

Brian had a distinguished career in mammology and invertebrate biology. He was notable among his peers for his scientific ethic, field data collection and writing skills. Beginning his interest in science at New Albany High School, New Albany, Indiana, Indiana from 1972 - 1976, Mr. Lang entered Ball State University in 1976 and earned his Bachelor of Science Degree majoring in Biology, with Minors in Natural Resources and Chemistry. From 1980 – 1983, Brian worked on his Masters of Science Degree in Wildlife Management at Frostburg State University, Maryland

Brian spent much of the next 30 years working to conserve snails and other invertebrates in the arid mountain west of North America. For his love of nature, especially unique and undiscovered small creatures;  his colleagues, family and friends want to continue to support his work. With any funds raised we hope to provide scholarships for future researchers and protect and conserve waters dear to Brian's heart, soul and works.
