Glacier National Park is hosting two community meetings to share information about park activities and provide an opportunity for personal dialogue between park leadership and local community members and neighbors. The first meeting will take place Wednesday, May 28, 5:30-7 p.m. at the Teakettle Community Hall in Columbia Falls and a second meeting will be Thursday, May 29, 5:30-7 p.m. at the Summit Medical Fitness Center in Kalispell.
The format of the meeting will include presentations by Glacier National Park Superintendent Jeff Mow and other park leadership team members. Following the presentations, there will be a question and answer period and opportunity for informal conversations.
Topics of presentation and discussion will include rehabilitation of the Going-to-the-Sun Road, spring plowing and snow removal operations, Going-to-the-Sun Road Corridor Management Plan and related human-goat interaction studies, and upcoming 100th anniversaries of park facilities and the National Park Service. Community members are encouraged to attend and learn more about what’s happening at the park.
