In celebration of National Park Week, Glacier National Park Superintendent Jeff Mow will give a community presentation about challenges and opportunities the park sees in the future at the heart of the Crown of the Continent ecosystem.

The talk will take place at Flathead Valley Community College on Wednesday, April 19 at 6 p.m. in the Large Community Room, Arts and Technology Building, Room 139.

Mow will address management strategies including the importance of community and partner collaboration in the face of increasing park visitation, invasive species, funding, and climate change.

Glacier National Park Conservancy Director of Development Nikki Eisinger will join in the presentation to share an overview of park projects supported by philanthropy for the 2016 National Park Service centennial, and a look forward at priority projects proposed for the next several years.

National Park Week is America’s largest celebration of national heritage. National Park Week runs through this week, with every national park, including Glacier, waiving entrance fees.
