WEST GLACIER, MONT. – As Glacier National Park enters its 100th visitor season, various programs and opportunities are highlighting the unique history of the park and its resources. "National Park Service education and outreach programming at Glacier has greatly benefited over the last 25 years through its cooperation and partnership with the Glacier Institute," said park superintendent Chas Cartwright. "No national park can reach all desired audiences, but through teamwork and partnerships, all audiences benefit from quality programs such as those offered by The Glacier Institute." Cartwright urges people to consider connecting with the park in 2010 through one of the Institute classes.
