Robin Will is supervisory ranger at the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge in northern Florida, near the Gulf of Mexico. The Refuge is known for its wildlife and migrating birds and Robin knows the Refuge is a powerful learning tool. PLT is incorporated throughout its environmental education program and Robin rains all Refuge staff in PLT—including the law enforcement officers.
Robin has been a Florida PLT leader since 1989, helping form its initial steering committee and serving in many other roles since then. She coordinates the PLT Schools program in Wakulla County, in which all public preschools and elementary schools involve their students in hands-on environmental education. She has facilitated more than 130 workshops for educators, who then teach environmental education to students of all ages. She has also mentored countless facilitators who go on to conduct their own PLT workshops.
Robin received National PLT’s Leadership in Education Award in 2018.
