Lynn came to NPCA in 2007 to launch the Midwest office in Chicago. As the Regional Director, she leads protection of more than 50 national parks in NPCA’s largest region.
She co-chairs the “Healing our Waters” coalition, which has secured nearly $2 billion in funding for Great Lakes restoration, including in the wetlands and waters of the eight Great Lakes national parks. Lynn loves the diversity of the Midwest parks: from Cuyahoga Valley in the East to the Black Hills of Mount Rushmore in the West, and from the very urban Pullman National Monument on Chicago’s south side to the rolling Tall Grass Prairie of Kansas. And although it’s always hard to choose a favorite, Lynn favors the majestic Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.
