For the past 16 years, Gary Johnson has been Chief of the Resource Planning and Professional Services Division, Blue Ridge Parkway. Gary, a landscape architect and planner, heads a division staff of 13, including branch chief, land resources specialist, cultural and natural resource management specialists, park curator, resident landscape architect, community planner, and a computer aided draftsman. This group of professionals is responsible for all of the pre-implementation planning and compliance and resource management activities on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Prior to his current position, Gary served for 18 years in field assignments in the southeastern United States and in the Denver Service Center as a project manager/landscape architect and section chief on major planning, design, and construction projects in some 50 National Park Service units. From 1988 to 1994 he supervised a group of Denver Service Center planners responsible for planning NPS areas in Alaska, the Pacific Northwest, and the western United States. Project clients have included numerous NPS managers and non-profit organizations with an interest in resource protection and visitor use management. In addition to directing projects, Gary has published and lectured on the subjects of visual quality, corridor resource assessments, cultural landscapes, historic landscape integrity, interpretation planning, goal-driven and strategic planning, and tourism planning.
Gary is a graduate of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, where he received a BS in Sociology in 1969 and a BLA in Landscape Architecture in 1976.

Gary Johnson Ranger - Camp Kettle Run Phone: 856.816.8658 | Report details parkway fears, 15 June 2004 [cached]
"We've always believed scenery was an important part of the visitation," said Gary Johnson, chief of resource planning for the National Park Service, which released the study.
Johnson said the differences in terrain between the two states probably explain the different concerns.In Southwest Virginia, the parkway rolls through pastures and farmland, which visitors could see as vulnerable to development.In North Carolina, new subdivisions are less of a threat because the parkway stretches across rugged, high mountains.
Johnson speculated that, had the Virginia survey been taken along the parkway north of Roanoke, where the terrain makes development less likely, survey respondents would have listed air pollution as their main concern.
