Apgar Visitor Center Gets Relocated

Posted: Updated:
WEST GLACIER - The Apgar Visitor Center in Glacier National Park gets a new spot, and a new look.

It's moved from the Apgar Village to the Apgar Transit Center.

The park's bus system will still pick-up and drop-off there, near the T-intersection just a mile north of the West Glacier entrance.

The Glacier National Park Conservancy persuaded several businesses to help with the change. Flathead construction company Swank Enterprises is leading the build and donated all time and expertise. Plum Creek donated the specialty wood and Kalispell Regional Medical Center stepped up to make the cabinetry.

"We've been talking for a long time about a west side discovery center, visitor center, and the opportunity came about to use the transit center for both transit center operations as well as visitor service operations," said Denise Germann, the Park's spokeswoman.

The new center opens this weekend.

Park officials don't know what they're going to do yet with the old visitor center in Apgar Village.
