Changes in our climate have impacted the Crown from the valley bottoms to the mountaintops. Its glaciers, snowfields, forests and wildlife species tell the story of warming temperatures and drier conditions throughout this landscape.
Changes to the things we care about – land, water, wildlife and the people who depend on them – demand that we better understand and face climate change.
Over eighty percent of the glaciers in Montana’s Glacier National Park have been lost since 1850, and the few remaining are expected to disappear within 15 years.
Montana is filled with examples of people who are finding ways to address climate change - both individually and with their neighbors and co-workers.
Protecting the Crown from the impacts of a changing climate will take the efforts of all of us.
