WEST GLACIER, Mont. [September 16, 2022] – Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park is hosting its Annual Science and History Week through a live webinar series offered September 26 to 29 at noon MDT on the Teams Webinar platform.

Participants will have the opportunity to connect with park scientists as they highlight current natural and cultural research topics related to Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park and World Heritage Site. Each presentation will give a unique look at our partnerships, insights, and latest findings.

Parks Canada and the National Park Service have hosted an annual Science and History Day together since 2004. In 2020 and 2021, the parks hosted the event as a four-day webinar series due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Participants from around the world learned about current research in the Crown of the Continent region. Given the success of the previous two webinar series, the parks have again decided to offer this opportunity to a world-wide audience.

Please join us to learn more about the exciting research initiatives in the world’s first International Peace Park. Participants may register for presentations by filling out the online registration forms on the Crown of the Continent Research Learning Center website.
