    Sue Black, Director of Arizona State Parks, returns to the Park Leaders Show
    to talk about culture, visitation and the impact of parks on a state.

    Listen to part two HERE.
    Director Black offers compelling reasons why parks are important as whole to
    a state and individual parks to communities. It is not about the park, it is about what happens in the park.
    You can't listen to this interview with Director Black and not be proud to be involved in parks.

    And in case you missed it, listen to the 1st podcast HERE

    Arizona State Parks & Trails is celebrating its 60th anniversary. Director Black has a goal to win the National Parks and Recreation Association Gold Medal Award this year. Throughout her career, Director Black has set high goals and then found a way to achieve it.

    Sue Black has been a director of two State Park systems, Wisconsin and Arizona, as well as Director of a County Park system. She brings a unique perspective to any parks conversation. Customers don't care about jurisdiction. Customers want to recreate. If different park systems are willing to work
    together, we can serve people better.

    As a previous Gold Medal winner with Milwaukee County Parks, and a finalist with Wisconsin State Parks, Director Black is working with her team to develop the culture to make Arizona State Parks a Gold Medal winner. Sue also shares the tragic story that led to Granite Mountain Hotshot Memorial State Park.
