Join us for the first course in the Centennial Series!!!

The first course of the Centennial Series is coming up next week! 100 Years of Bears in Many Glacier will be held June 4-6 and there's still time to sign up! Glacier National Park’s story would not be complete without a look at the bears of Glacier Park. Join us for day hikes with expert naturalist and author, Ralph Waldt, to learn about bear biology, habitat and foods, and spring emergence from the den. We hope to catch a glimpse of one of these impressive animals by making frequent stops along the trail and roads to glass mountain sides and avalanche chutes.Give us a call or check out the details online:
