Each fall and spring, buses arrive in Glacier, dropping off over 7,000 school children eager to develop scientific and leadership skills. Families arrive for multi-generational guided park adventures.Teachers arrive to attend workshops designed to provide hands on standards based curriculum training for classroom and park learning. In the summer, Glacier Youth Corps sets out to repair trails, paint buildings, give public programs, and learn about careers in public lands. The Conservancy facilitates strategic education initiatives designed to engage current and future park stewards of all ages by funding programming, transportation, and endowments that ensure our children and grandchildren all have the opportunity to become a part of Glacier’s scientific, historic, and conservation story.
