Imagine taking a drive to Glacier after work one evening, parking at Avalanche and walking up to Red Rock looking for harlquin ducks and enjoying the wildflower display. The breeze is chilly, but the light is good and the weather is mild. You and your friends sit on the rocks and spot a pair of harlequins. You decide that is a great place for dinner so you watch them as you munch on your sandwiches and glass the hillside above the creek. Much to your pleasure, you soon spot a sow griz and her cub foraging near a snowfield. Not to be outdone, two goats start heading down a cliff far to the left of the bears. Does life get any better? On your way back to the car, you spot two more goats. Agreeing that the evening has been just perfect, you decide to stop in at the boat dock at Apgar for one more look. One of your friends spots a pair of loons right away. Grabbing binos and tiptoeing across the dock, you get the thrill of a lifetime as they perform their courtship dance as darkness falls.
That's the Glacier experience. It is what GNPC is all about and why we do what we do. Working hard to raise awareness, educate visitors, sell books and gift items and spread the word about how wonderful Glacier is. If you feel the same way, you can help us by making a donation at www.gnpconservancy.org or by shopping at one of our bookstores in the Park or at the Belton Depot.
