Glacier Park announces pre-centennial events

Good things in works for 2010 celebration

Glacier National Park is quickly approaching its 100th anniversary. The park has empowered a team of volunteers to help plan and implement a community-based Centennial Program to take place throughout the latter half of 2009 and run through the celebration year of 2010.

There are a number of activities that will take place in 2009 that are yet to be on the centennial calendar. A full calendar of activities will be launched in August 2009 at an in-park event. For up to date information or centennial plans visit:
