As Director of Recreational Lands, Hansi Johnson focuses on assisting the City of Duluth in identifying, securing and promoting its nature-based recreational assets. In addition, he will work with other Land Trust staff to develop strategies to expand this work to other communities in Minnesota.

Prior to joining the Land Trust, Hansi was the Regional Director for the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA), helping volunteer clubs such as the Duluth-based Cyclists of Gitchee Gumee Shores (COGGS) work within their communities to create destination quality, sustainable, off road cycling trail experiences.  He also spent 12 years in sales and marketing for such companies as Patagonia, Wenonah Canoe and Garmont USA.

Building on a boyhood of hunting, paddling and outdoors shenanigans in his hometown of Winona, Hansi parleyed his personal devotion into a career that centered on igniting and enabling the outdoor recreation passions of others.

Hansi’s work helps us realize the power of linking outdoor recreation and open space conservation, and how the two can truly create an improved quality of life for communities across the state.
