COLUMBIA FALLS — The first cabin built through Glacier National Park and Columbia Falls High School’s school-to-park partnership is ready for delivery.

Glacier National Park officials helped load the cabin Tuesday morning which will be transported to the Polebridge Ranger Station on Thursday.

Columbia Falls students were selected through a competitive vetting process to participate in the program, building the cabin since September.

Students focused on a building layout, material take-offs, cost-estimating, and the full spectrum of building a completely functioning house.

The school-to-park partnership prepares students for careers in engineering, construction, and business leadership.

Park officials say the partnership will continue for the coming years.
