Iowa State Parks Ambassador

The Youth Ambassador Program is a youth led movement for promoting the outdoors to other young adults. Youth Ambassadors share their own passions for the outdoors in hopes of inspiring others to get outside and experience what the state parks have to offer. In order to do this, Ambassadors work with park staff and take advantage of social media with the sole intention of reaching out to youth who have not developed a deep connection with outdoor recreation. Check out Logan's Page on America's State Parks!

Logan Roberts
Iowa State Parks Youth Ambassador

Age: 21
Favorite State Park: Ledges State Park
Bio: I grew up on an acreage in the country and constantly explored the woods behind my house, discovering a strong love for nature at a young age. A variety of outdoor hobbies, frequent camping trips, volunteering at local parks and working two seasonal county conservation jobs furthered my passion and led me to pursue a career in the natural resources field.

I am now a senior at Simpson College double majoring in Environmental Science and Multimedia Journalism with a minor in Biology. I love being involved on campus and doing anything outdoors.



Is there something exciting happening at an Iowa State Park that Logan should know about?
