Joel Robinson (naturalist)[edit]

Joel S Robinson (born July 27, 1977[1]) is a naturalist[2]. "His nonprofit, Naturalist For You, has been leading people on guided hikes through the natural ecosystems of the county since 2006."[3] Joel portrayed himself on Storage Wars on the A&E Network, Haunted Highway on Syfy, Mysteries at the National Parks on Travel Channel, Wild Scene Investigation on Nat Geo WILD and Mountain Man short documentary film for the Community Voices program at Dodge College of Film and Media Arts.[4] He’s worked as a naturalist with the U.S. Forest Service, Audubon Society, The Nature Conservancy, The Wildlands Conservancy, Ojai Valley Land Conservancy, Los Padres Forest Assn., city of Santa Ana, city of Lake Forest, and Orange County Department of Education.[5]

Early Life[edit]

Joel S Robinson was born on July 27, 1977 in Orange County, California. His father's last name is Robinson, and his mother's maiden name is Wohl.[6] He graduated from El Modena High School in 1995.[7] "He grew up in west Orange, where his first house, off of Orangewood Avenue and State College Boulevard, was a paradise for him. The house was flanked by citrus orchards where chickens, raccoons and toads prowled. Kids ran around unsupervised. This was his first experience interacting with the natural environment, a period that still sticks in his mind as one of the happiest times of his life."[8] "...his journey has included the Pasadena Art Center of Design, Saddleback College, and Fullerton College."[9]

Career[edit]

Irvine Ranch and Naturalist For You[edit]

"When I worked for The Nature Conservancy as a full-time naturalist on the Irvine Ranch, I discovered that the expansive Trabuco Ranger District of the Cleveland National Forest lacked the financial resources and staff to provide a similar amount of public programs.

As a free service to the general public and the U.S. Forest Service, our program provides professional guided wilderness tours and community outreach services on a daily basis to increase the active stewardship of our forests. With our own non-profit, we have the freedom to focus on the art of interpretation."[10]

Podcasts and OC Weekly[edit]

The Poundcast with DJ Douggpound: "Doug hangs out with barefoot nature master Joel Robinson, founder, executive director, and head naturalist for Naturalist For You. http://www.naturalist-for-you.org Andre Hyland also drops by for a really fun and long episode. Shots Fired!"[11]

Twisting the Wind with Johnny Pemberton: "an extra crunchy executive buffet featuring the golden boy of naturalists, Joel Robinson. Nature is dipped in deep, plants and bugs are adored, shoes are taken off."[12]

OC Weekly: Gustavo Arellano wrote the introduction to Joel's nature column with OC Weekly "Gustavo note: I've known Joel Robinson for years now, the guy who fought the city of Orange over his all-native plants lawn and leads urban foraging expeditions through Orange County. Guy is funny, knows his terrain, and would be arrested in a second in Irvine if he ever step foot–our kind of columnist! Every Saturday, he'll be documenting his adventures in the wilds of Orange County–now, without further ado…"[13]
