Speculation begins over possible Biden pick to head USNPS

With a new occupant in the White House, the National Park Service may get something it never had under President Trump: a permanent director.

Sources say at least three candidates are now on the short list to lead the agency: Cassius Cash, the superintendent of Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee and North Carolina and a 10-year agency veteran; Christine Lehnertz, president and CEO of the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy in San Francisco and the former superintendent of Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona; and Mike Reynolds, director of the Interior Department's Lower Colorado Basin, Upper Colorado Basin and Arkansas-Rio Grande-Texas-Gulf regions.
