48 Years And Counting

Grand Teton National Park

Today marks 48 years since Congress established the National Park Foundation. That’s 48 years we’ve dutifully served as the official charity of America’s national parks; 48 years we’ve proudly partnered with the National Park Service to ensure our national heritage remains protected, vibrant, and relevant now and in the future.

Without their incredible sculpting power, our country’s landscape would be vastly different, and though millennia have passed, glaciers still cover nearly 10 percent of the Earth’s surface and make up the largest reserve of fresh water in the world.

Today, several of our national parks offer an opportunity to see some of the last remaining glaciers and understand their awesome power. So exactly where are glaciers in America?
