Seashore superintendent takes permanent post as Yosemite head


The superintendent of the Point Reyes National Seashore, Cicely Muldoon, is moving on after 10 years in charge. Ms. Muldoon accepted a new position starting Nov. 8 at Yosemite National Park, where she’s served as the acting superintendent since January. She led the seashore through high-profile issues and key projects, including the rehabilitation of the Point Reyes Lighthouse, the wilderness designation and restoration of Drakes Estero, the designation of multiple national historic districts and the recently released general management plan amendment. She served as acting deputy superintendent in Yosemite in 2016 and the acting superintendent of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area in 2017. “Her calm demeanor and steadfast focus on employee wellness, health, and safety were constant throughout her tenure… She will be missed,” park spokeswoman Christine Beekman said. Ms. Muldoon’s predecessor, Don Neubacher, also left the seashore to helm Yosemite. The regional office plans to fill her position at the seashore as soon as possible; Carey Feierabend, the deputy superintendent for the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, is currently serving as the acting superintendent.
