Every summer on the fourth Tuesday in July, 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 (Glacier in odd years, Waterton Lakes in even years). Topics for the 2015 program included wildlife monitoring using remote cameras, history of people prior to park establishment, harlequin duck research, five-needle pine restoration, salamander migration, and much more! This year, Science & History Day will take place at the Falls Theatre in Waterton Lakes National Park. Check back here in early summer for a full schedule of speakers and an agenda.
