The Apgar Nature Center is nestled amongst the cedar trees in Apgar Village. The nature center is staffed by park volunteers, and open daily from 10 am to 4 pm, mid-June to late August.

Visitors can uncover what makes Glacier National Park special through a variety of hands-on, interactive activities and displays. At the nature center, children can create a puppet show, identify birds by song, feel a grizzly bear's fur, sculpt a moldable landscape, discover unique plant life, or match wildlife to their habitats on a habitat board. Although many of the activities are children-friendly, there are displays, information, and activities for all ages.

Throughout the summer, ranger-led talks and children's programs are offered most days in the outside seating area. Join a ranger to learn more about the plants, animals, history, and geology of Glacier National Park. Check the Ranger-led Activity Schedule for specific dates and times of the program offerings.
