Getting Ready for 2016

The National Park Service turns 100 on August 25, 2016. To us, it's not about cakes and candles — it's about being an organization ready to take on the challenges of our second century. Our blueprint to get there — A Call to Action — outlines the innovative work we want to accomplish. Glacier Bay National Park & Preserve is a big part of this effort. Take a look at what we're doing locally and get involved!

The land is rising! In Glacier Bay uplift rates are some of the highest in the world. Since the glacier retreated and removed its weight from the land, some places are rising over an inch every year.
