Karen Taylor-Goodrich has been selected as the new superintendent of Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks.

“Karen is a seasoned leader who has successfully managed complex and controversial issues for the National Park Service at the national and international levels for the last six years,” said National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis in an announcement on Monday.

“I’m excited about the many challenges and opportunities Sequoia and Kings Canyon presents,” said Taylor-Goodrich, who is scheduled to start at the park in early February. “I look forward to getting to know and working with the park staff, the local communities, my interagency colleagues, and our other partners to protect and conserve this very special region.”
