The Glacier National Park Fund raised over $5,000 to offer teachers opportunities to apply for travel grants to pay for their busing to the park for ranger-led field trips. Over 35 teachers applied for, and were awarded travel grants ranging from $175-$275 to subsidize their trips to the park this school year. Glacier's education specialist works with the Fund and the schools to verify they completed their field trips and to process the grant applications.
