Everglades National Park has a new acting superintendent with a specialty in climate change. The National Park Service announced Thursday that Bob Krumenaker who has logged 37 years with the park service, will take over the 1.5 million-acre park as well as Dry Tortugas National Park for the next three months.
He is currently superintendent of Apostle Islands National Lakeshore on Lake Superior in Wisconsin, a starkly different park where dramatic ice sculptures, rather than alligators, draw visitors. Krumenaker, 57, was one three superintendents nationwide, along with former Superintendent Dan Kimball, to study the scientific and policy implications of climate change on national parks. Krumenaker takes over July 30.
