Science & History Day at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park!

WEST GLACIER, MONT. – The Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park will host the Waterton-Glacier Science and History Day on Thursday, July 26, from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. at the Falls Theatre in Waterton Lakes National Park of Alberta, Canada. The event is free of charge and all are encouraged to attend. This year marks the 9th annual event.  Each year the event 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 aquatic resources, history, social research and wildlife. Some of the topics for this year include: harlequin ducks, hair snares for grizzly bears, native plant gardens, alpine stream insects, learning from the Sofa Mountain fire, wolverines, and ice patch archaeology.

Waterton Lakes National Park Superintendent Ifan Thomas commented, “Science and History Day offers an outstanding opportunity for the public to learn about some of the research initiatives in the Peace Park. We welcome everyone to Waterton for this special event.”

Glacier National Park Superintendent Chas Cartwright noted, “The peace and friendship of the Peace Park is captured in the many cooperative projects carried out in our scientific community. All the speakers do an excellent job of presenting topics in a nontechnical manner.”

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.
