Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve: THE POWER OF GLACIERS 
Glacier Bay National Park has a dynamic glacial history. The area and its people have experienced and observed the tidewater glacier cycle of advance and retreat. Today, Glacier Bay is a place of scientific research where scientists conduct studies to understand how glaciers function and what their future may be. In this interactive lesson, a National Park Ranger will guide students through a history of glaciers in Glacier Bay. Students will create a model and engage in discussion with the Ranger. There will be time for questions. This program is designed for children in grades 5–8, but all are welcome.


NOTE: Organized groups (scouts, schools, hiking clubs, etc.) are welcome, but are asked to call Five Rivers at 518-475-0291 to register.
