Glacier National Park preserves over 1,000,000 acres of
forests, alpine meadows, and lakes. Its diverse habitats are home to
over 70 species of mammals and over 260 species of birds. The
spectacular glaciated landscape is a hikers paradise containing 700
miles of maintained trails that lead deep into one of the largest intact
ecosystems in the lower 48 states. Glacier National Park contains over 350 structures
listed on the National Register of Historic Sites and six National
Historic Landmarks. Founded in 1910 when President Taft signed
the bill establishing it as the country's 10th national park,
Glacier National Park is known for its high
density of grizzly bears. In 1932 Glacier and Waterton Lakes National
Park, in Canada, were designated Waterton-Glacier International Peace
Park. This designation celebrates the longstanding peace and friendship
between our two nations. Glacier and Waterton Lakes have both been
designated as Biosphere Reserves and together were recognized, in 1995,
as a World Heritage Site.
