Glacier National Park and the Glacier Institute are accepting applications for their third climate change teacher workshop to be held June 23-26 at the park.

Middle and high school teachers from the local area and across the country are encouraged to apply. Teachers selected for the science and field-based workshop will spend time in the park with agency researchers and educators discussing climate change impacts on park resources. The four-day workshop will be based at the Glacier Institute’s Field Camp in West Glacier. Teachers will learn about climate change and the complexity of the issue, and how to incorporate it into classroom curriculum.

Room and board will be provided free of charge during the workshop and participants who complete the workshop may receive a grant to defray their travel/transportation and material costs. Participation is limited to 18 teachers.

To apply, and learn more about the workshop, visit the Glacier Institute’s website at https://www.glacierinstitute.org/ or call 406-755-1211. On-line applications will be accepted through close of business on Friday, April 11, or until the workshop is full.
