Daniel Brown, superintendent of Gulf Islands National Seashore, spoke to Navarre Beach Area Chamber of Commerce members about the Deepwater Horizon oil spill recovery process and other park projects July 29 during the chamber’s monthly Commerce and Coffee.
Brown, who has worked at 12 national parks throughout the U.S., was hired as the superintendent at Gulf Islands last summer following the oil spill.
“This is a place I’ve always wanted to come and work,” he said. “…My wife has informed me that we’ve arrived.”
Brown said he arrived for his new position just days before the oil reached the shores. He said cleanup efforts were still not complete within the park.
