Take a walk on Glacier’s trails or a drive along Going-to-the-Sun Road and you will pass by historic cabins, native wildflowers, exhibits about park wildlife, and ten visitor centers and ranger stations. With over 700 miles of trail and nearly 400 historic structures, countless artifacts and archaeology sites and the storied Ptarmigan Tunnel, Glacier stretches across one million acres of forest, prairie, and alpine parkland. The Conservancy funds projects and programs that preserve Glacier’s heritage for all to explore in generations to come.
At the Conservancy, we fund the following:
- Revitalizing the historic Belly River Ranger Station District
