She will serve in this position until approximately May 30.

“I am very appreciative of the opportunity to serve as acting superintendent for Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River," Weinman said. "I feel truly honored to assist, even for a short time, with the protection of this site."
She said she chose the National Park Service as a career because it allowed her to contribute to public education and the preservation of our country’s diverse resources, history, and culture.
Wienman began her career as a seasonal park guide at Mount Rushmore National Memorial in South Dakota. Since then she has served in a variety of facility management positions throughout the country, including Wind Cave National Park, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and Zion National Park.
