WEST GLACIER - The National Park Service has named a new superintendent for Glacier National Park.
Jeff Mow will be taking up residence in Northwest Montana on Aug. 25 and has been with the NPS for 25 years.
He most recently served as the head of Kenai Fjords National Park in Alaska, but is no stranger to Big Sky Country. He first visited Glacier National Park while fighting the Bench Creek Fire near Polebridge in 1988.
He also spent four summers as a geologic field assistant in southwestern Montana and says he's looking forward to returning to the Treasure State.
"Glacier has a reputation of being a successful park in terms of serving visitors and having some of the most pristine and wild resources in the lower 48," he said.
Mow will take over from interim superintendent Kym Hall, who filled the position in December after former superintendent Chas Cartwright retired.
