2017 Outstanding DNR Land Manager–John Arthur

johnWe congratulate John on being selected for the HERO award this year and for his many years working for the Wisconsin State Parks program. John has been very successful in managing all of the properties in his work unit — which includes Yellowstone Lake State Park, as well as additional park system properties and the oversight of 3 trails. John has set an example of using creative ways to accomplish what is needed and to get the work done during a time when staff
is limited. It is noted that John goes above and beyond and works long hours to accomplish the mission of the state park system and to best serve the visitors of Yellowstone Lake State Park and the other properties that he manages. He has also worked with the Friends of Yellowstone Lake State Park to become
an established and successful Friends group and his support has helped them to accomplish so much in such a short time. John and his wife Amy are both
very dedicated to making Yellowstone Lake State Park a great place to visit. Congratulations on this award John!
