Glacier National Park is at the center of the largest wilderness complex in the lower 48 states, and one of few ecosystems where all native carnivores live unassisted. Its wide elevation range (~2,000 m), complex topography, and location along the Continental Divide result in great biological diversity. Glacial features include active glaciers, large and small glacial lakes, cirques, and moraines. Glacier National Park is the world’s first International Peace Park, with Waterton Lakes National Park in Canada, and is also an International Biosphere Reserve.
