"The response to these new communication tools has been tremendous. It's amazing how fast our Facebook page has grown. Hopefully we can continue to provide content that engages people and keeps them connected to the park."
Mark has been at Glacier for 12 years where he manages the east side interpretive program and directs the astronomy education activities. "I am incredibly impressed with the responses we receive after posting photographs on Facebook. People are so engaged with this park and it is always a reminder of how lucky I am to work and live here year-round."
There are many aspects of living in Northwest Montana that Melissa enjoys, but cruising as fast as she dares on skis or a mountain bike is sure to bring a smile to her face.
After floating back and forth for years between her job with the National Park Service and as a ski patroller during the winter, she settled in a permanent position as the Park Information Receptionist at Headquarters. Her knowledge of both sides of the park help her answer all the tough questions from inquiring visitors. Although Ellen misses the fantastic hiking right at your doorstep on the east side of the park, she has found the rivers on the west side a wonderful alternative. When she is not on the river, she can be found cajoling her child to "enjoy hiking".

Grizzly bears in the park have a wide variety of food sources, including glacier lily bulbs, insects, and berries. They may also make an early season meal of mountain goats that were swept down in avalanches over the winter.
