Who We Are

As employees of the National Park Service we are tasked with both protecting our land and sharing it with the public. It is a big job that takes a lot of people. Within each national park various offices manage budget and finance, concession operations, visitor protection, interpretation and education, facilities and infrastructure, and the protection and preservation of cultural and natural resources. Our park management team consists of a group of division leaders led by the Park Superintendent.
