National Park Service (NPS) Regional Director Bert Frost announced the selection of Curt Dimmick as superintendent of Missouri National Recreational River spanning South Dakota and Nebraska. In this capacity Dimmick will serve as the Group Superintendent overseeing operations for both Missouri National Recreational River and the Niobrara National Scenic River. He currently serves as Chief of Resource Management and Visitor Protection at Pinnacles National Park. He will assume his new role in January.
“We are pleased to welcome Curt as the new superintendent,” said Frost.“His years of leadership experience outside the federal government in addition to his extensive background in law enforcement, emergency services, and resource protection in the National Park Service will make him an outstanding superintendent for this park.”
“It’s a great honor to be selected as superintendent of Missouri National Recreational River,” Dimmick said about his appointment.“I look forward to working with the park’s staff and partners to protect the visitors and resources of the park and strengthen our connections in the community. Having grown up in Northwest Illinois along the Mississippi River I know the importance of this kind of resource, and I am excited to share this experience
with my family.”
Curt and his family will be moving to the Yankton area in January.
