The official education partner of Glacier National Park and the Flathead National Forest received a grant that puts it just $200,000 shy of meeting the fundraising goal for the restoration of the Big Creek Outdoor Education Center.

The Glacier Institute received a $250,000 grant from the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust to be used for renovations to the home base of its outdoor camps and programs. The grant brings recent total fundraising near the $1.7 million total needed for the Restoration Big Creek capital campaign.

“We are so grateful to the Murdock Trust for the support and the belief in our work here at the  Glacier Institute,” said Institute Director Anthony Nelson said in the release.
