Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Erin Brown, and I have been asked to fill in as the Acting Superintendent at Peninsula State Park. Since 2006 I have worked as the Park Manager at Potawatomi State Park. I was assigned to Peninsula in January of 2011, and expect my assignment here to last through the summer. The vacant superintendent position at Peninsula State Park is the highest priority position for the Wisconsin State Parks Bureau to fill. However, the process will take some time.
Managing Peninsula State Park is a big job, and I feel like I’m still getting my feet wet to some degree. I’m starting to meet and work with the various partners, including the Friends of Peninsula State Park. One of the major projects we’ve been working on together is the Nicolet Beach Shelter project. The project is supported by a Stewardship Grant awarded to the Friends. We’re still in the planning stages of the project, but I’m confident it will be completed well in advance of the June 2012 grant deadline.
I can already see that the Friends of Peninsula State Park is an active and supportive group. I look forward to working with all of you while I am here.
