Waterton-Glacier Science & History Day | Alberta & Montana

Every summer, Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park presents a special all-day program featuring eight presentations highlighting science and history in the peace park and the surrounding Crown region. This event brings together scientists and historians conducting research in Glacier and Waterton Lakes National Parks, giving them an opportunity to share their insights and research results with the public. Topics vary from the latest wildlife research to archaeological surveys to fisheries investigations to ecological restoration and more. The event is co-organized by staff at Waterton Lakes National Park and the Crown of the Continent Research Learning CenterClick here for details about this year's conference.

Admission to the respective park still applies, but the all-day event is free and open to everyone.

Consider bringing a bagged lunch to optimize your time visiting with fellow enthusiasts during the lunch break. Refreshments are provided by the host park mid-morning and afternoon.

We encourage you to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy outside during the noon break, so you don't miss any of the afternoon sessions. Restaurants are also available in both Glacier and Waterton.
