My pal, Frosty, Jr., stopped by to help me brainstorm for my Christmas list. Since my family doesn't have much need for gifts, we decided I should be a spokesman for my friends at Glacier National Park Fund and let you know you can give a gift in honor of your family and friends AND help Glacier in the process! Here are the main designated ways to give:
Research: Knowledge is the key to successfully understanding the complex ecosystem processes found in Glacier. Support of research initiatives provides park managers with the insights and scientific knowledge required to make informed decisions about critical issues. This is where our very popular Citizen Science Program comes into play!
Experience: GNPF continues to focus on trails as their highest priority in this category. With over 700 miles of trails to hike, you are sure to find one suited to you and your family! All of the hikers on your list will love knowing that you have helped to maintain their favorite trail(s)!
Discover: Each year this program brings over 12,000 students to Glacier to help inspire them to become good stewards. Did you know that many local children have never been to Glacier? What a wonderful way to give to them and those on your list!
Unrestricted: Last but not least, our unrestricted fund is always a wonderful way to donate!
Remember, these are just a few of the ways you can give to Glacier. For more information, go to:
www.glaciernationalparkfund.org and click on the “Ways to Give” tab
or call 406-892-3250 and ask one of the friendly bipeds there to help you decide which way to give.
The Fund will send a beautiful 8 X 10 “Glacier” colored certificate letting them know you have given a gift in their honor.
