WEST GLACIER, MONT. -  Glacier National Park is hosting a brown bag seminar on Friday, May 6th at 12 p.m. showcasing the newly created historic walking tour of the Headquarters District. The brown bag seminar and walking tour will be presented by students of the Whitefish Independent High School.

If you have ever wondered what structures and facilities are necessary for the daily operations of a national park, where the superintendent or chief ranger work, or where the snowplows hide during the summer, then join the students for this informative brown bag seminar in the West Glacier Community Building. Feel free to bring your "brown bag" lunch along.

Glacier National Park's first self-guided, historic walking tour was designed and created by the students of the Whitefish Independent High School and teacher Matt Holloway, and made possible by their collaboration with the Park's Education Specialist, Laura Law, Park Cultural Resource Specialist/Historical Architect Lon Johnson, and Park Museum Curator, Deirdre Shaw. Funding for the project was provided by a grant from the Montana Cultural Trust.

The Brown Bag lectures are made available by Glacier National Park's Crown of the Continent Research Learning Center.
