Greetings from Glacier National Park

It was our second visit to the park, having been “smoked out” from the wildfires previously. The Road to the Sun is so breathtaking that we had to travel it several times. I took this picture on a perfect day for photography and it now graces our home as a large framed print. As with many of our national parks, any photo falls short of experiencing it firsthand. My wife and I are regular contributors to NPCA and would encourage others to contribute also, no matter what the amount. These are national treasures that MUST be preserved for both present and future generations.

Sincerely,
Van

Glacier National Park

Glacier National Park preserves more than a million acres of forests, alpine meadows and lakes with habitat for a wide variety of plant and animal life.

State(s): Montana

Established: 1910

“Our government has other priorities and national park funding has slowly eroded over the past several years. As concerned citizens we need to step up to the plate to ensure a continued functioning national park system that all can enjoy -- now and in the future.”

National parks represent the best of America. Why do you care about protecting and preserving them? Tell us why parks matter to you!
