The superintendent of Keweenaw National Historical Park in Calumet is being reassigned to a new job elsewhere in the Upper Peninsula.
The National Park Service says Mike Pflaum will become the superintendent of Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore on January 26th. He’s a former supervisory park ranger at Yellowstone National Park and a former chief ranger at Mount Rushmore National Memorial.
Pflaum has served as superintendent of Keweenaw National Historical Park since January of 2011. He’ll succeed Jim Northup at Pictured Rocks. Northup was named superintendent of Shenandoah National Park in Virginia earlier this year.
