Would you like your artwork to be seen by over 14,000 people next year? Then start working on an entry for our Annual Park Pass Artwork Contest. Check out the details of how to submit your entry here. The deadline is April 12, 2013. Don't delay - we can't wait to see what you come up with!

The National Park Service Scout Ranger Certificate/Patch page outlines the reward system and options for Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts and Venturers groups visiting national parks and participating in educational or volunteer activities. Similarly, the Resource Stewardship Girl Scout Ranger Program page details the National Park Service partnership with the Girl Scouts. Volunteer and service opportunities in Glacier vary widely. Please contact the park's Volunteer Coordinator to see if there are any projects available during your group's visit. Generally, completing the park's Jr. Ranger program (4-8 hours); going on an interpretive walk with a ranger ( 1-8 hours); or participating in a Glacier Institute Class (3-8 hours) all work toward fulfilling the program requirements. The schedule for summer, ranger-led programs can be found in the "Ranger-Led Activities Schedule".

Grizzly bears in the park have a wide variety of food sources, including glacier lily bulbs, insects, and berries. They may also make an early season meal of mountain goats that were swept down in avalanches over the winter.
