Glacier Institute nears fundraising goal to restore Big Creek facility

August 7, 2023 / Daily Inter Lake

The Glacier Institute is $200,000 away from reaching its $1.7 million goal to restore the Big Creek Outdoor Education Center.

The Glacier Institute is the educational partner of Glacier National Park and the Flathead National Forest. The organization’s Big Creek Outdoor Education Center, also a historic Flathead National Forest Ranger Station, is located along the North Fork of the Flathead River near the Camas entrance of the park.

An email from Executive Director Anthony Nelson said the institute is expecting to move into Phase 2 of their restoration project in October.

According to the Glacier Institute’s website, personnel have spent years “making do” with piecemeal renovations and ad hoc repairs that have cost more time and money.
