Glacier National Park, known as the "Crown of the Continent," is a stunningly beautiful mountain landscape adorned with glaciers and snowfields. Combined with its sister park, Waterton Lakes Park in southern Alberta, the two become Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, the first of its kind in the world. These wild places are the realm of the grizzly and the mountain goat, along with the diminutive pika and delicate, yet exceptionally hardy, wildflowers that put on a dazzling display in the short season between the months of snow. Visitors to Glacier and Waterton have a lot of questions about the native flora and fauna, and there isn’t a ranger around every corner to answer them. Nature Guide to Glacier and Waterton National Parks will be their handy resource to quickly identify over 200 animals and plants native to the parks. Conveniently sized to fit in a pocket, look inside for full-color images, detailed descriptions, useful park information, and much more as you explore the unique wildlife and nature of Glacier and Waterton Lakes National Parks.
