MIKE KRUSE, PROGRAM COORDINATOR
Mike was born in Utah, raised near Lake Michigan, then headed west. Here, he roved around for over 15 years, exploring and learning before landing in Tucson in the fall of 2019. Now he and his dog, Roady, enjoy living in the beauty and diversity of the Sonoran Desert!
It is a goal of his to educate, inspire, and get people from all sorts of backgrounds out enjoying nature and public lands. He achieved a B.S. from the University of Idaho in Resource, Recreation, and Tourism with a minor in Outdoor Recreation Leadership, then furthered his education with an M.A. from Prescott College in Environmental Studies with an emphasis on Social Ecology. Mike loves to listen to and play music, read, laugh, and get outside with Roady, whether that be recreating in many different forms, relaxing, or simply reveling in the wonders of nature. You can often find him and Roady exploring in and around Tucson and beyond!
