WEST GLACIER, Mont. [July 5, 2024] – Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park will host the 21st annual Waterton-Glacier Science and History Day on Tuesday, July 23, from 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. at the Community Building on Albright Circle, West Glacier, MT. The event is free of charge and open to the public.

Participants will learn from scientists and historians about current research and historical topics related to Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park through a unique look at the partnership, insights, and latest findings.
Presentations are grouped into four themes; wildlife, visitor use management, co-stewardship, and cultural and historical resources. Topics include efforts to vaccinate bats in Glacier for White-Nose Syndrome, Glacier and Waterton visitor use data interpretations and management strategies, collaborative success of the Northern Leopard frog reintroduction, co-stewardship efforts on fisheries research and management, a history of Walter B. Forester, and the history of Glacier’s red buses.
No registration necessary. Attendees are encouraged to bring a sack lunch to enjoy during the one-hour lunch break. Attendees from Canada are reminded that a passport is required for crossing the U.S./Canada Border.
Since its inception in 2004, this event has been held yearly and alternated locations between the two parks, with the previous four years being held virtually. This is the first in-person event since 2019.
