Former Grand Canyon chief who retired under mysterious circumstances named to lead major park group

Christine Lehnertz, who last month abruptly ended her National Park Service career rather than return to Grand Canyon National Park and a subordinate who made false allegations against her, is heading back to San Francisco to lead the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy.

The Conservancy's Board of Trustees on Wednesday announced that Lehnertz would become the organization's president and CEO beginning on May 13. At that time, Greg Moore will become CEO Emeritus and transition into a new role as special advisor with the Conservancy.
