Entirely new, Zinke-appointed National Park System Advisory Board to meet for first time

A diverse range of members appointed to the National Park System Advisory Board will gather for their first meeting on Wednesday in Washington, D.C., to receive overviews of the National Park Service's natural and historic landmarks programs and receive background on the National Park Foundation, history in the parks, fish and wildlife programs, and elect a chairman and vice chair.


The meeting of the 11-member board is the first since nine members of the board appointed by President Obama resigned in protest last January over Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke's decision not to engage with them. Secretary Zinke's spokeswoman "welcomed" the resignations of nine members and chided them for doing nothing while women were being harassed in the National Park System.
