logan_pass_plant_inventory_1Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park will host the 12th annual Waterton-Glacier Science and History Day on Tuesday, July 28, from 9:30a.m. – 3:30p.m. at the West Glacier Community Building in Glacier National Park*. The event is free of charge and all are encouraged to attend. Held yearly on the 4th Tuesday in July, this event alternates between the two national parks with Glacier hosting in odd years and Waterton Lakes hosting in even years.

Science and History Day is a great way for the public to hear the latest results from scientists and historians carrying out projects in and around the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. Topics are presented in a non-technical manner, and are grouped into themes such as aquatic ecosystems, history, and wildlife. Some of the topics for this year include results of research on: remote camera wildlife monitoring, history of people prior to park establishment, harlequin ducks, five-needle pine restoration, westslope cutthroat trout genetics, native bumblebees, and salamander migration.
