The Myers Family
The Myers Family Huts were established with an inaugural gift from Gib and Susan Myers in 2016. Gib and Susan have served as Board Directors for American Prairie since our founding, with Gib serving as Board Chair during our founding decade. Together, Gib and Susan have made significant contributions that inspire others to fall in love with the prairie, including their leadership gift to establish American Prairie's network of visitor huts. To recognize Gib and Susan’s investment and commitment, we are thrilled to name the hut system in their honor.
