- Superintendent Dan Wenk will retire from Yellowstone National Park on September 29, 2018, after a 43-year career with the National Park Service. This date was agreed to by officials at the Department of the Interior (DOI) and the National Park Service.
- At the beginning of June, DOI notified Dan of his future reassignment to become the Regional Director of the National Capital Region in Washington, D.C. Dan declined this reassignment.
- Until he retires, Dan’s areas of focus will be: finalizing the agreements for bison quarantine and relocation; collecting data and developing community support for the long-term visitor use management planning effort; concessions contracting; and working with park staff to continue improving workplace culture.
- Cam Sholly, Yellowstone’s next superintendent, is expected to arrive in the park in October.
