Every summer, Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park presents a special all-day program highlighting the parks' science and history. 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 their research with the general public.

The location of this event alternates between the two parks on an annual basis. Topics for the 2014 program included a look into the status and success of the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park's whitebark pine restoration program, a presentation on historical woman characters from Glacier's early years, research on wolverine density and abundance in Glacier National Park, and much more! This year, Science & History Day will take place at the West Glacier Community Building in Glacier National Park. Mark your calendars and check back this spring for a full schedule of speakers.
