Park Services Specialist Gerard Greco
Blackwater Heritage State Trail
Park Services Specialist Gerard Greco has been a member of the park service family since 2003, but he has been an advocate for nature and outdoors all his life. A native of Northwest Florida and an avid outdoorsman, Gerard enjoys spending his time outside in the fresh air and sunshine. As a young man he would visit Blackwater River State Park with his family most every weekend in the summer, hiking the trails and learning what he could about the forest and the animals that live there. Gerard hoped to become a park ranger so that he could continue to learn and experience the outdoors.
Gerard started his working life in construction where he learned the skills that make a ranger so effective, including carpentry, plumbing and electrical. He enjoys working with his hands and has a natural mechanical aptitude for fixing whatever is broken. Gerard spent 10 years working in a wood shop as the mill foreman before changing professions to work with the Florida Park Service.
Gerard spent the first couple of years moving around before settling at Blackwater Heritage State Trail and has seen the trail transform from a quiet little local gem into what is now a very popular biking destination. He is very proud of the way the staff, volunteers and regular trail patrons take ownership and treat the trail as their own backyard in the same way he does.

- Interesting Facts
Florida, which joined the union as the 27th state in 1845, is nicknamed the Sunshine State and known for its balmy climate and natural beauty. Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon, who led the first European expedition to Florida in 1513, named the state in tribute to Spain’s Easter celebration known as “Pascua Florida,” or Feast of Flowers. During the first half of the 1800s, U.S. troops waged war with the region’s Native American population. During the Civil War, Florida was the third state to secede from the Union. Beginning in the late 19th century, residents of Northern states flocked to Florida to escape harsh winters. In the 20th century, tourism became Florida’s leading industry and remains so today, attracting millions of visitors annually. Florida is also known for its oranges and grapefruit, and some 80 percent of America’s citrus is grown there.
