Ever since the long-standing PIO left Yellowstone I have been very disappointed in how the Park Service has been disseminating information. It seems like the number of news releases plummeted - even before the Covid changes.

They have at their disposal an official park web site (including the Alerts in Effect banner at the top), Facebook and Twitter accounts, all of which could provide (and are designed to provide) timely information. And yet, very often I find current news more up to date about the park on the web sites of regional newspapers and other sources.

Seems like no one in the Public Information office feels any sense of urgency to communicate information that would have a beneficial impact on visitors when something unexpected happens.
