WEST GLACIER, MT. - The Crown of the Continent Research Learning Center at Glacier National Park is hosting a free brown-bag lecture on Tuesday, August 21 from 12- 1pm at the Community Building in West Glacier. The public is invited to join Dr. Kerry Foresman who will discuss rare species in Glacier National Park such as the porcupine, least weasel, and fisher.  

Dr. Foresman's career started over 40 years ago, studying pikas near Logan Pass. During this lecture he will cover species that have been extirpated and others that may occur in the park but have not yet been found. He is the author of newly published book, Mammals of Montana.
