June is the ideal month to view the bold blooms of Glacier’s prairies and foothills.
Walking around Marias Pass area, one of the most beautiful and least visited areas of Glacier, we’ll see the details of shining penstemon, prairie smoke, and blue camas among others. Perfect for beginner to experienced wildflower enthusiasts.

Our recent Work Weekend was a tremendous success with volunteers, staff and Board members showing up from all over the States and Canada. Thanks to all of you for making the trek and working so hard to help prepare our field sites for the upcoming summer.
Trails around the field sites were rebuilt, bathrooms were cleaned, grounds cleanup was done and our Big Creek Outdoor Education Center and Glacier Park Field Camp look all spiffed up and ready for student use.
Again, great big thanks to you for all the help! Our volunteers and donors make all the difference and your help is greatly appreciated!
Join us again for a course this summer and more LEARNING GONE WILD!

We had a great Biking for Bears course last weekend. Great people, great scenery and lots of great information.
One of our students sent in a photo of Glacier National Park taken during the course that I thought to share. Even on rainy, overcast days, the Park is absolutely beautiful.
Thanks to everyone who joined us for this exciting course. We hope you had as much fun as our staff did spending the day with you.
Don't forget that our summer season is just around the corner and we have many other educational adventures planned.
Join us in Glacier National Park for more Learning Gone Wild!!
