What you need to know about the Glacier National Park fund.
The four main areas of focus for the Glacier National Park fund were preservation of the park experience, to provide curriculum based park instruction, to study and research the park’s ecosystem and to prepare for the centennial year for the park, which took place in 2010. The fund believes in aiding study and does so with grants. In 2009 the fund granted $10,000 to biologists to research the Bighorn sheep who live in the park, and in 2007 it funded a study on human and bear aversion techniques.
