We highly recommend these interesting programs offered by Glacier National Park and its partners.
Now in its 31st season, the Native America Speaks program provides park visitors the opportunity to hear from members of the Blackfeet, Salish, Kootenai, and Pend d’Oreille Tribes as they share their knowledge of the language, history, and culture of Native America with park visitors throughout the summer. Presentations are offered throughout the park almost daily through September 5th. All Native American interpretive programs offered at Glacier National Park are made possible through donations from the Glacier National Park Conservancy. For more information about the Native America Speaks program, including a schedule of events, please visit http://www.nps.gov/glac/planyourvisit/nas.htm.
Since 1983, The Glacier Institute, a private nonprofit, has been providing hands-on, field-based educational adventures to people from all over the world in nature’s wildest places, Glacier National Park and the Flathead National Forest, located within the Crown of the Continent ecosystem. The Institute is an equal opportunity provider of education. http://www.glacierinstitute.org/About-Us_W4388.cfm
The Glacier National Park Citizen Science Program engages park visitors, students, and staff in collection of scientific information that would otherwise be unavailable to resource managers and researchers. Since 2005, the Citizen Science Program has invited members of the public to assist in biological research while recreating in the park. The program is coordinated by the Crown of the Continent Research Learning Center (CCRLC), based in Glacier. http://www.nps.gov/glac/learn/nature/ccrlc-citizen-science.htm
To date, Vital Ground has helped protect and enhance nearly 600,000 acres of crucial wildlife habitat in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Alaska, and British Columbia. The organization’s dedication to conserving grizzly bear range goes beyond saving a single species. When there is enough “vital ground” to sustain an umbrella species like the grizzly, a multitude of other animals, plants, and fragile ecosystems benefit as well. http://www.vitalground.org/
