Robert Barrett

Florida Department of Environmental Protection
Rob has been the Interpretive Services Programs Manager for the Florida Park Service since August 2012 and has spent that time working with parks and partner organizations to create recreation, interpretive and professional development programs. A graduate of Florida State University, he has a bachelor’s in biology and has worked as a naturalist, summer camp counselor, teacher and wildlife rehabilitator. He is proud to have turned a lifelong connection to the outdoors into a career that will hopefully help ensure the continuation of protected spaces for the next generation. He lives just outside of Tallahassee and, when not traveling to various state parks, you can find him at home with his chickens, watching wildlife, knitting or working on some project in the yard.
