Year Accomplished:

In 2012-2013 school year we received a National Park Foundation America's Best Ideas Grant to work with 2 schools on the Blackfeet Reservation to create videos of their visits to Glacier National Park and the adjoining Flathead National Forest. We worked with our education partner, the Glacier Institute, and our philanthropic partner, the Glacier National Park Fund to complete this project. In less than 3 months, teachers and education rangers learned how to use video software, and then taught upper elementary level students how to use them. Students from the 2 schools created a total of 14 short videos, posted on Glacier National Park's YouTube Channel. GlacierNPS
