The Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park will host the Waterton-Glacier Science and History Day on Tuesday, July 29, from 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. at the Falls Theatre in Waterton Lakes National Park of Alberta, Canada. The event is free of charge and all are encouraged to attend. This year marks the 11th annual event. Each year the event alternates between Glacier and Waterton Lakes National Parks.
Waterton Lakes National Park Superintendent Ifan Thomas commented, “Science and History Day offers an outstanding opportunity for the public to learn about some of the research initiatives in the Peace Park. We welcome everyone to Waterton for this special event.”
Glacier National Park Superintendent Jeff Mow said, “The peace and friendship of the Peace Park is captured in the many cooperative projects carried out in our scientific community. All the speakers do an excellent job of presenting topics in a nontechnical manner.”
Office of Public Instruction (OPI) renewal units will be available for Montana teachers who attend this conference. Attendees are reminded that a passport is required for crossing the U.S./Canada Border. A detailed agenda is available at visitor centers in Glacier National Park and online.
