Glacier 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.

In 1932 Glacier and Waterton Lakes National Park, in Canada, were
designated Wateron-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.
