St. Mary Visitor Center temporarily closed
It is believed that the furnace in the visitor center malfunctioned and caused the sprinkler system to activate early this morning. There is water damage to the building, its contents, and some of the utility systems. The damages are being assessed.
Glacier National Park participates each year in the Flathead Community of Resource Educators (CORE) educational trunk workshop.
The workshop is usually held the 3rd week in October over the teacher training (PIR) days in partnership with the Northwest Montana Educational Co-op. In 2009, the Flathead CORE is holding the trunk workshop October 15 at the Flathead National Forest Supervisor's Office, 650 Wolfpack Way, in Kalispell.
Check the Flathead CORE website or the Curriculum Cooperative's website in the spring of each year to get the exact dates, which trunks will be featured, and the location & schedule for the workshop. The worskhop will also be posted on the local teacher training website, PIRnet.
