Glacier National Park and the Glacier Institute are accepting applications for their “Discovering Glacier through Science & Culture” teacher workshop to be held June 21-24 at the park.
Upper elementary, middle, and high school teachers from the local area and across the country are encouraged to apply.

The four-day workshop will be based at the Glacier Institute’s Field Camp in West Glacier. Teachers will learn about a variety of current research projects and learn about the park’s resources through both native perspectives and western science.
Room and board will be provided free of charge during the workshop and participants who complete the workshop will receive a grant to defray their travel/transportation and material costs. Participation is limited to 18 teachers.
