Superintendent’s Discretionary Funds

Expert in Residence Fund

This fund allows park managers to engage outside experts in natural resource protection, cultural resource preservation, and other park-related goals for short- to mid-term projects. For example, the park recently brought in an expert to assess the restoration viability of a number of historic structures that are in a state of disrepair.

Robert Jacobsen Employee Development Fund

Named for a beloved retired superintendent of Shenandoah National Park, the Robert Jacobsen Employee Development Fund supports park employee participation in leadership and other career-enhancing trainings.
