Robert R. Hill has not received any gifts yet
My name is Robert Hill, though I like to go by Rob or sometimes even Rob Hill because it seems to flow so nice. I am from a small town called Indian Rocks Beach, Fl. Early experiences spending time exploring the mangroves and the tidal flats around my home have instilled an intrinsic passion for the outdoors. It was not until I got into Florida Gulf Coast University that I realized I could make a career out of this love for the natural environment around me.While slugging through the cypress swamps and hiking in the pine flatwoods around campus I was able to earn a B.A in Environmental Studies.
Now a days I spend my times out here at Lake Mead, braving the Mojave Desert. While revamping the water safety programs for the park, I have also been learning about the ecology of this amazing region. The SCA has opened my eyes to what it may be like to have a career in the NPS and I look forward to future adventure.
