Kathleen Ogilvy, area forester with the Virginia Department of Forestry
Kathleen became a trained PLT facilitator in 2008. Over the past decade, she has taken the initiative to lead PLT workshops each year for area educators and forestry personnel, as well as pre-service workshops at two local colleges. Every summer Kathleen uses PLT activities with Girl Scouts at Camp Pamunkey Ridge, and has worked with several Boy Scout troops on their badges. She has coordinated with a Richmond school to lead a monthly after-school program to get 5th graders outside. For each monthly meeting, she uses PLT activities centered around a theme. She also represents the Department of Forestry and PLT at a variety of outreach events, such as York River State Park Estuaries Day and Explore the Outdoors at the local PBS station.
Kathleen was named a National PLT Leadership in Education Award honoree in 2018.
