The National Park Service orientation video has been split into its eleven chapters. These videos are available either as streaming video or as a download. The video files are currently being updated so you may notice some problems that should be fixed shortly.

Best results can be obtained for browsers that support the video tag. Currently this is working with the Firefox 3.5 browser. The Safari browser also works but requires a plug in for Ogg video files. If your browser does not support the video tag then you will get Flash videos. The quality of the Flash videos has been improved from those posted previously.
