Like so many supporters of the Park Trust, Mike’s love of our National Parks began in childhood when he and his siblings piled into the back of the family station wagon to tour the parks of the Rocky Mountains and the American Southwest during summer vacations. Over the years he expanded his knowledge of the National Park system. In 2002, through a family foundation, Mike provided funding to the Park Trust for the acquisition of key acreage on the south shore of the island of St. John for donation to the Virgin Islands National Park. In the ensuing years, Mike has participated in a number of Park Trust initiatives, including serving as a member of the Park Trust Advisory Board.

“My family and I have seen first-hand the creativity, agility, and commitment the Park Trust brings to the land preservation process as well as the joy experienced by the Park Trust’s Buddy Bison Kids (ours included). The Park Trust provides an unparalleled opportunity for donors and sponsors to have a lasting impact on our National Parks and to leave a legacy of environmental stewardship for generations to come.”
