Since 1983, the Glacier Institute has been providing hands-on, field-based educational adventures to people from all over the world in nature's spectacular classroom, the Crown of the Continent ecosystem with Glacier National Park at its center. The Glacier Institute has partnered with Thinkific to develop The Glacier Institute Online University to offer the same high quality education to anyone who might not be able to travel to Montana.
"Take one of our courses and then put the computer down and get outside and enjoy the world around you."
