camEos KB: It got to be very dangerous


around 1:00 or 2:00 am, when the winds were at their max, probably 60 or 70 miles per hour. We decided it was best to stop for the night. When we got started again early the next morning we realized it was countywide. Our depart- ment required that we close the park and assess the damage. T e hardest part was that it took so long to get our power back. We couldn’t let the public in with- out bathrooms or running water.


BJ: After successfully managing


the windstorm and being part of such a large, collective eff ort to get things cleaned up, you must feel like you’ve been through a sort of initiation.


KB: It was defi nitely an interesting


start. It allowed me to get very orien- tated with all the trail systems and the roads. It was a huge team eff ort. It’s easy to coordinate when you have great peo-


ple on your team and everyone can take an assignment and make it happen. I am very happy and impressed with our staff and all the volunteers. Everyone stepped in and helped. We survived, learned a lot, and we were happy to get the park back open for people to use.


BJ: It seems like everyone who works


at Peninsula State Park feels really pas- sionately about what a special park we have with its eight miles of shoreline and the incredible bluff s...that must help make your job a little easier?


KB: It always comes back to the fact


that this property is so worth it – every day that you work, every hour as a vol- unteer, every board that you’re serving on or committee you’re working on. Most of the people that I’ve met, as well as myself, realize that everything you can do to continue the mission of Peninsula is well worth it.
