Did you know that Glacier National Park was established in 1910? Glacier National Park is located in northwestern Montana, on the border between Canada and the United States. The park is often called the “Crown of the Continent Ecosystem” and contains pristine examples of ecosystems ranging from prairie to tundra. The unique mountains and valleys were formed and carved by glaciers. In 1850, the park had about 150 glaciers, as of today there are only about 25 active glaciers left. Scientific studies estimate that due to climate change, all of the glaciers in Glacier National Park may disappear by 2030.
We hope that you stay cool under pressure. Remember to think kind thoughts, use kind words, and do kind things. We Love You.
Glacier National Park shares a border with Waterton Lakes National Park in Canada.
Glacier National Park contains about 700 lakes. Many of the lakes are known for unique pigmentation that comes from glacial silt. The lake water is also very cold, inhibiting plankton growth. As a result, many lakes have extremely clear water.
In 2017 Glacier National Park and Waterton Lakes National Park were designated as an International Dark Sky Park.
