Posted: Updated:
GLACIER NATIONAL PARK -

WEST GLACIER, MONT. – Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park will host the Waterton-Glacier Science and History Day on Tuesday, July 30, from 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. at the West Glacier Community Building in Glacier National Park.

The event is free of charge and all are encouraged to attend. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the event, which alternates between Glacier and Waterton Lakes National Parks.

Science and History Day is a great way for the public to hear the latest results from scientists and historians carrying out projects in and around the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. Topics are presented in a non-technical manner, and are grouped into themes such as ecosystem dynamics, history, and wildlife. Some of the topics for this year include: bat inventory, Civilian Public Service Corps presence in the park, non-invasive grizzly bear monitoring, Going-to-the-Sun Road rehabilitation, ecological restoration, and environmental history revealed through sediment cores.

Glacier National Park Acting Superintendent Kym Hall stated, "We are honored to host Science and History Day this year and welcome everyone to Glacier. Please join us to learn more about the history of this special place and some of the research initiatives in the Peace Park."

Waterton Lakes National Park Superintendent Ifan Thomas noted, "This event is a unique opportunity to hear from park experts about a variety of topics. Joint research initiatives reflect our longstanding spirit of cooperation as the world's first International Peace Park."

Office of Public Instruction (OPI) renewal units will be available for Montana teachers who attend this conference. Attendees are reminded that a passport is required for crossing the U.S./Canada Border. A detailed agenda is available at visitor centers in Glacier National Park and at http://www.nps.gov/glac/naturescience/ccrlc-sciencehistoryday.htm.
