Lake Mead National Recreation Area gets new superintendent

The National Park Service has selected Margaret L. Goodro to serve as the superintendent of Lake Mead National Recreation Area. She replaces Lizette Richardson, who retired last year.

“Margaret is a proven collaborative leader who is passionate about bringing people together to protect America’s national parks while providing for recreational opportunities,” said National Park Service Deputy Director P. Daniel Smith. “Margaret is a trailblazer who has created opportunities to hire youth, minorities and disabled staff throughout the Department of the Interior. She has also been successful making our national parks more accessible for our nation’s disabled visitors and veterans.”

Goodro serves as the superintendent of Biscayne National Park in Florida and will transition to her new role in mid-May. This move marks Goodro’s return to Lake Mead where she served as a district ranger earlier in her career.

Goodro has a deep background in public service with a 26-year career that includes park ranger positions in county, state and federal parks.
