The northern 30 ore 40 miles of the Apalachicola River is lined with bluffs and ravines. Here, more rocks and fossils are exposed than in any other place in Florida. On the first day of RiverTrek 2016, a group of conservation minded kayakers explores some of the rockiest places in Florida. Their guide is Assistant State Geologist Harley Means. He finds ancient fossils and rocks.
Rob Diaz de Villegas is a senior producer for television at WFSU Public Media, covering outdoors and ecology. After years of producing the music program OutLoud, Rob found himself in a salt marsh with a camera, and found a new professional calling as well. That project, the National Science Foundation funded "In the Grass, On the Reef," spawned the award-winning WFSU Ecology Blog. Now in its tenth year, the Ecology Blog recently wrapped its most ambitious endeavor, the EcoCitizen Project.
Rob is married with two young sons, who make a pretty fantastic adventure squad.
