Hello, I’m Rob Burg. I am an environmental historian, focusing on lumber, reforestation, and CCC history in Michigan. I was most recently the Museum Director of the Lovells Historical Museums in Lovells, Michigan and the Archivist for the Crawford County Library System in Grayling. From 1998-2013, I served in the position of site historian and historic sites manager for four historic sites and museums for the Michigan Historical Museum system, notably the Hartwick Pines Logging Museum at Hartwick Pines State Park and the Michigan CCC Museum at Higgins Lake. I have a bachelor’s degree in History from Eastern Michigan University where I also attended graduate school for Historic Preservation and Heritage Interpretation and Tourism. During a more than twenty-year career, I have worked at a number of museums and historic sites in Michigan and Pennsylvania. I’ve written articles on lumber, reforestation and conservation, and the CCC. I have presented programs at numerous museums, libraries, and schools throughout Michigan and the Midwest. I’ve appeared in historical documentaries and travel programs on PBS, Animal Planet, and in independent productions. I have also done consulting for a number of museums on administration, collections and curating, education, exhibits, interpretation, and programs. I am currently writing a book about Michigan’s lumber history. I’ve returned to my hometown of Chelsea, Michigan where I am currently residing.
