The Wilderness & Land Ethic Curriculum
One of the significant things about Glacier National Park is its wilderness character. Although the park is not a federally designated "Wilderness," it is managed as wilderness.
An excellent guide to helping students understand more about wilderness is The Wilderness & Land Ethic Curriculum produced by the Arthur Carhart National Wilderness Training Center.
There is also a wilderness trunk available for loan in the Flathead region. Visit our traveling trunks page and download the list of additional trunks to find out how to reserve it.

Did you know that eight inches of snow fell during one night in Glacier's high country in August, 2005? The weather forced hundreds of backpackers out of the backcountry.
