  14. Robyn Fischer

    Robyn grew up in Los Angeles and was never really inspired to visit the great outdoors—she used to tell everyone she was allergic to fresh air.

From the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico, from the Puget Sound to the Chesapeake Bay, she believes there is no water that doesn’t deserve to be protected.
