At Bald Point State State Park, we kayak by fishermen, oystermen, migratory ducks, and monarch butterflies- some of the best of natural north Florida. Joining us are: Doug Alderson, the Assistant Chief of Florida’s Office of Greenways and Trails. Georgia Ackerman is the new Apalachicola Riverkeeper. And Mike Mendez is a multiple Apalachicola RiverTrek participant.
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.
