Jon Jarvis Confirmed as NPS Director by Senate
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - National Park System, Jon Jarvis, Director of National Park Service, Senate confirmation
Contributed By: The National Trust for Historic Preservation's Department of Public Policy
Website: http://www.nthp.org

The Senate confirmed Jon Jarvis to be the next director of the National Park System by voice vote after Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) dropped his procedural hold on the nomination. Coburn had placed a hold on the Jarvis nomination because of his stance on issues ranging from carrying concealed weapons in the parks to the Park Service "using outside groups as a tool to influence Congress.”

Jarvis has spent more than 30 years at the Park Service, most recently as the agency's Pacific West regional director, where he oversaw 56 national parks and supervised 3,000 employees. Jarvis, a trained biologist, also has served as superintendent of Mount Rainier National Park, Craters of the Moon National Monument in Idaho, and Wrangell-St. Elias National Park & Preserve in Alaska— the largest unit of the national park system. He also was head of natural and cultural resources for more than five years at North Cascades National Park, where he was the chief biologist of the 684,000-acre complex of two recreation areas and one national park.
