Park Service Director Leaves Lasting Legacy For National Parks

Press statement by NPCA President Tom Kiernan

Washington, DC - The National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) congratulates National Park Service Director Fran Mainella on her successful tenure as director. 

Director Mainella has been a passionate, enthusiastic advocate for our parks.  She emphasized within the Park Service the value of working closely with the local communities, public officials, and many advocates who care deeply about our national parks.  She has also been a champion for connecting America’s young people and our increasingly diverse citizenry to the parks. 

Most importantly, under Director Mainella’s leadership the Park Service produced a rewrite of its management policies that protects the national parks for future generations.  The implementation of these important policies and the respect she demonstrated for park professionals will be among her great and lasting legacies.
