Glacier National Park and the Glacier Institute are accepting applications for their second climate change teacher workshop to be held June 24-27 at the park.

Middle school and high school teachers from across the country are encouraged to apply. Teachers selected for the science and field-based workshop will spend time in the park with agency researchers and educators discussing climate change impacts on park resources.

Teachers will learn about climate change curriculumand the complexity of the issue, and how to incorporate it into classroom.

Room and board will be provided free of charge during the workshop and participants who complete the workshop may receive a stipend to defray their travel/transportation and material costs. Participation is limited to 20 teachers.
