Scott Tucker, a 19-year veteran of the National Park Service, has been selected as the new superintendent of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Tucker currently serves as superintendent of Lewis and Clark National Historical Park, which consists of seven units along the Columbia River and the Pacific Coast from Long Beach, Washington to Cannon Beach, Oregon. He has led that park system since Juyly 2013.
“My family (his wife is a Michigan native) is thrilled to be moving to northern Michigan and eager to make a connection with both the park and the community,” says Tucker. “Sleeping Bear Dunes and the state of Michigan are already in our family photo album, and we look forward to making many more memories there. I am excited to help the park continue protecting its amazing resources for the next generation,”
Tucker will begin his new assignment in mid-June. He replaces Dusty Schultz, who retired in November 2015.
