Jeff Mow, a 25-year veteran of the National Park Service (NPS), has been named superintendent of Glacier National Park in northwestern Montana. Mow, who is now superintendent of Kenai Fjords National Park in Alaska, will begin his assignment at Glacier on Aug. 25.
Mow, who has led NPS management and stewardship at Kenai Fjords since November 2004, is eager to return to Glacier and Montana. "My first visit to the park was in 1988 as a wild land firefighter on the Red Bench Fire near Polebridge," he recalled. "Twenty-five years later, it is such an honor and privilege to return as superintendent and a newest member of Glacier's outstanding management team. I can't wait to join with the park staff and partners as we meet numerous challenges and opportunities facing the park in the next few years."
