A trout found in such cold waters that it is covered in fur?! This fictional fish was used in the early 20th century as an advertising gimmick to promote tourism to Glacier.

Too early to talk snow? We've got some good news about ours! A report from the NPS & USGS has shown stable or decreasing pollutant concentrations in our snowpacks over the last 20 yrs. Full report here:

Visiting a national park can feel like entering a whole new culture. You may hear new lingo, terminology, and acronyms thrown around. What’s your favorite outdoor slang, motto, or term?

The graph was designed for small screens, however we included the numbers of acres in the language in our post on this thread: From 1984-2015, ~22 million cumulative forest acres burned in the western U.S. & 11 million of those can be attributed to human-caused climate change

From 1984 to 2015, about 22 million cumulative forest acres burned in the western United States, total, and 11 million of those acres can be attributed to human-caused changes in our climate. Data adapted from Abatzoglou and Williams, 2016.

Take a look at this graph. The top line shows the acres burned from wildland fires in the west from 1985 to 2015. The bottom line shows the amount of land that would have burned naturally during this time without the impact of human caused climate change.

Yes, wildfire is a natural and necessary part of life in Glacier National Park. In fact, many of the park’s plants and animals simply cannot live without wildfire. But in recent years unnatural factors have influenced the park’s wildfires as well.
