Gateway National Recreation Area (GATE) Public Affairs Office is pleased to announce that its news releases are now available via RSS feed. RSS (Really Simple Syndication or Rich Site Summary) technology allows you to easily stay informed by retrieving the latest content from the web sites you are interested in so that you don’t have to regularly check each site.
You will need to have RSS reader software (a program that collects and displays RSS feeds) in order to subscribe to NPNH news releases. If you already have this software, or if you are using a web browser that has it built in, you can subscribe to the park’s news releases by going to the GATE web site at: http://www.nps.gov/gate/news and clicking on "Subscribe" next to the RSS symbol.
At this time, all GATE news releases will continue to be distributed by fax to all who are on the park’s fax distribution list as well as being available via RSS feed.
If you would like to learn more about what RSS feeds are and how to use them, you can visit www.usa.gov/Topics/Reference_Shelf/Libraries/RSS_Library.shtml
