Slowly Discovering GNP Week
4:00 PM
Glacier Institute Field Camp
August 17-24 2019
Cost $1,125
Glacier National Park has many strenuous hikes however this trip will be focused on exploring the shorter hikes and allowing ample time for curiosity of the natural world around us. We will learn about cerulean lakes, meadows busting with wildflower, and Glacier’s famous bears and goats. This trip is designed for those that want to explore the park and gain a deeper understanding of the natural world through moderate hiking. John Muir encouraged visitors to Glacier National Park to “give a month at least to this precious reserve.” He said that time in Glacier “will not be taken from the sum of your life. Instead of shortening it, it will indefinitely lengthen it and make you truly immortal.” Although we cannot promise that this trip will result in immortality, we can promise a trip of camaraderie, learning and world class hiking that you will remember for years to come. Join like-minded individuals for a truly unique exploration of the ‘Crown of the Continent’ Ecosystem.
