Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park
Science and History Day - July 26, 2016
Come learn about the latest research directly from the scientists and historians working in and around the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. All are welcome to attend the international Waterton-Glacier Science and History Day hosted by Parks Canada and the U.S. National Park Service at the Falls Theatre in Waterton Village, Waterton Lakes National Park. It is free of charge with park entry fees.
Some of this year’s subjects include: the threats facing salamanders, cross-boundary work on climate change, the parks’ lesser-known past and how remote cameras are used to track wildlife movement. Experts will discuss their work in a non-technical style, with presentations grouped into themes of aquatic resources, landscapes, history and wildlife.
This year, we will celebrate the U.S. National Park Service’s centennial with a viewing of the 1954 film “Wardens of Waterton” featuring cooperative work with Glacier National Park’s Rangers. Attendees are encouraged to bring a sack lunch for the 45-minute lunch break, so as not to miss the film viewing at 12:45 p.m.
July 26, 2016: 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Falls Theatre, Waterton Lakes National Park
