Glacier celebrates National Park Week

Posted: Updated:

Now's the time to head into Glacier National Park.

Entrance fees are being waived through Sunday, April 24 in honor of National Park Week and the National Park Service Centennial. National Park Week is an annual celebration of the parks and programs in communities nationwide that have allowed generations to discover history, nature, and wildlife in irreplaceable ways.

This year’s theme for National Park Week is “Find Your Park.” The Find Your Park campaign encourages everyone to find their own connection with the vast network of public lands and places that protect and preserve our natural and cultural heritage.

National Junior Ranger Day is on April 16. Visitors four years old and older, even adults young at heart, are invited to participate in the park’s year-round Junior Ranger Program. Junior Ranger books can be purchased for $3 at visitor centers.

Another event -- being hosted by the Glacier National Park Conservancy -- is the Find Your Park InstaMeet. It will take place at 7 p.m. on April 23 at Lake McDonald. All ages and cameras welcome! Share your photos on your favorite social media account.
