Susan Crook oversees advocacy and education on Public Lands issues under the direction of the Board as staff to the CSU Ambassadors Committee. She plans and directs SUNCLF volunteer activities in coordination with National Conservation Area staff at the BLM St. George Field Office. The SUNCLF friends group is funded, in part, by a Challenge Cost Share grant through a Cooperative Agreement with BLM.

Susan has worked in the public and private sectors in landscape architecture and planning, and has served on the boards and staffs of a number of non-profits. She is a licensed landscape architect who is passionate about conservation, sustainable design, and the preservation and responsible use of historic and cultural resources. The four eminent domain actions against the small dairy farm on which she grew up were a catalyst for civic involvement that has endured throughout her life.
