A new superintendent is taking over at Dinosaur National Monument.

The Craig Daily Press reports that Paul Scolari will begin work on March 31.

Scolari has worked for the National Park Service for 24 years, most recently as the chief of resource management and planning for a group of national parks near San Francisco.

The Dinosaur National Monument covers more than 200,000 acres along the Colorado-Utah border. The site includes scenic canyon property with overlooks of the Yampa and Green rivers and a visitor center containing a cliff face that holds hundreds of dinosaur bones.

The site's previous superintendent left in 2018 for a similar role at Buffalo National River in Arkansas.

Scolari's duties also include overseeing the superintendent of Fossil Butte National Monument in Wyoming.
