About our Educator:
Dr. William Lester holds a graduate degree in Plant Medicine from the University of Florida and currently serves as the Urban & Commercial Horticulture Agent II for UF/IFAS Extension in Hernando County, FL. Combining a mix of horticultural knowledge and management skills, his current responsibilities include teaching the public and working closely with county and professional clients. As a frequent guest presenter to community groups and writing for local newspapers, his goal is to put complex scientific findings into language that can be understood by school-age children and the adult public alike. He has been involved in the creation of multimedia educational materials to support the Hernando County Fertilizer Ordinance, the local Noxious Weed Ordinance and most recently a program of virtual teaching. Protecting Hernando County’s fragile Nature Coast ecosystem and reducing the amounts of harmful toxins being placed in the environment are the central goals of his frequent teaching programs. As the coordinator for almost 100 Extension volunteers, Bill believes that education and providing an opportunity to serve residents are the keys to attracting and maintaining a highly motivated group of individuals to work to achieve those goals.
