The nation’s first park has taken steps to maintain a presence in 21st century media for the public. As of this month, the 140-year-old park has entered the world of blog posts, podcasts, photos and video on Facebook, Flickr and You Tube adding to its already established presence onTwitter.

Among the messages being blogged, vlogged and tweeted is daily information about wildlife viewing, road closures and interesting tips for the vacationer as well as park safety.
