David Uberuaga


The superintendent of Grand Canyon National Park has announced his retirement. Dave Uberuaga will step down next month. As Arizona Public Radio’s Ryan Heinsius reports, the move comes after a federal investigation of sexual abuse within the park’s river district.


The Grand Canyon National Park is renegotiating the terms of its contract with the current concessionaire, Xanterra.

Helping to shape that new contract will be the new Park Superintendent, David Uberuaga.

He was involved in writing contract regulations several years ago when he was Superintendent at Mt Rainier National Park in Washington.
