At a Glance

Glacier National Park is known for its awe-inspiring verticality, its charismatic wildlife in a centuries-old completely intact ecosystem, its shrinking glaciers and in-your-face geology, and as the watershed to the North American Continent. But behind the obvious, the stories of Glacier are just as fascinating. Biologist and geologist Denny Olson will concentrate on the "Bet you didn't know that!" stories about Glacier National Park's wildlife, geologic history and ecosystems, with the goal of making you the star of your next dinner party — when we can have them!
