C&O Canal historical park has a new chief ranger

August 09, 2003

A new chief ranger for the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park has been selected, Superintendent Douglas D. Faris said.

Robert "Rob"" Danno, a 21-year veteran of the National Park Service, is chief ranger at Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah. He will begin his duties for the C&O Canal in mid-September. Danno succeeds Keith Whisenant, who left the position in December 2002.

Danno said he is looking forward to coming to the C&O Canal. In 1999, he took a 3,317-mile cross-country bicycle trip that included the canal.

Danno will move to the area with his wife, Mary; son, Troy; and daughters, Katie and Sarah.

He will supervise a staff of 14 federal law enforcement rangers and will be responsible for managing the park's visitor and resource protection program
