Greetings from Glacier National Park

This past summer, I took a course, Montana Master Naturalist, with the Glacier Institute. When I stepped out of the bus arriving at Glacier Institute Field Camp, I thought, “This is heaven: cabins with beds, a kitchen, and even a library. No tents, and Yes! showers.”

Every day, we went on nature walks to learn about the plants and birds around us. We did not have to go far. One of the instructors pointed out a Rufous Hummingbird nest in our camp area. These tiny pollinators weave their nests from twigs, bits of leaves, and spider web material. Even the smallest of creatures at Glacier made my visit worthwhile.

Sincerely,
Byron
