DCNR appoints new manager at Lackawanna State Park
DCNR has named Kevin Koflanovich manager of the Lackawanna State Park Complex in Lackawanna, Wayne and Susquehanna counties.
“With prior experience at Beltzville and Delaware Canal state parks, Kevin has a keen appreciation of water-based resources and recreation,” said DCNR Acting Secretary Ellen Ferretti. “His field experience and public relations skills are a perfect match for Lackawanna, where a 198-acre lake helps draw more than 360,000 visitors annually.”
Koflanovich will oversee Lackawanna’s 1,411 acres just north of Scranton, which are especially popular with winter activity enthusiasts. Other state parks within the complex are: Prompton, 972 acres, Wayne County; Archbald Pothole, 153 acres, Lackawanna County; and Salt Spring, 400 acres, Susquehanna County.
“I greatly enjoyed working at Beltzville State Park, and am leaving a wonderful family of coworkers that are an outstanding team of great folks,” said Koflanovich. “I’m really looking forward to getting to know the people at the Lackawanna complex, and joining them in their operations.”
Koflanovich replaces Dustin Drew who was named manager of the Moraine State Park Complex in Butler and Lawrence counties.
The new Lackawanna park complex manager began his career with the Bureau of State Parks six years ago, working as a park management trainee and assistant park manager at Delaware Canal State Park. Most recently he worked almost three years as manager of Beltzville State Park in Carbon County.
Koflanovich, 41, a native of Shavertown, Luzerne County, holds a bachelor’s degree in recreation and park management from the Pennsylvania State University. He and his wife, Amanda, are the parents of two children, ages 3 and 4.
