Uberuaga will assume his new duties effective January 4, 2009 replacing the retiring Mike Tollefson who will move to his new position as president of the Yosemite Fund.
Uberuaga will serve in this capacity until a permanenet replacement for Tollefson is selected by Regional Director Jonathan B. Jarvis and the Director of the National Park Service.
