The heart of the Crown of the Continent (the Crown) is the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. NPCA has been leading efforts to protect this extraordinary landscape and its wildlife. These national parks are at the heart of efforts to protect biodiversity in the region, but they are not islands. These parks need to be linked to a broader landscape, such as the Crown, in order to sustain wildlife populations and wilderness in general. Waterton-Glacier is the brightest jewel in the Crown and is the world’s first International Peace Park. However, the whole Crown is far greater than the sum of its parts.
On July 24, world-renowned wildlife biologist Douglas H. Chadwick and photographer Steven Gnam will share images and stories--of tracking wolverines, of being tracked by cougars, and so much more--from their new coffee-table-book-with-a-purpose Crown of the Continent: The Wildest Rockies (Braided River/Mountaineers Books). Their multi-media presentation will explore the surprising connections between culture, history, communities, and the great outdoors in one of the world's most majestic regions.
