    Event Description You’re invited to a triple celebration:

    #1 It’s the 50th Anniversary of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act! Our Glacier National Park Star Party is on the Wild and Scenic North Fork of the Flathead River, which forms the southwestern border of the park. 

    #2 Last year, Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park became the world’s first transboundary International Dark Sky Park! This is kind of a big deal. Especially when viewing Montana’s star studded skies.

    #3 Our launch date, August 12, is predicted to be the height of the 2018 Perseids Meteor Shower! You can learn more about the Perseids Meteor Shower here — we’re hoping for clear night skies filled with falling meteors. Where could be a better place to watch a major meteor shower than on the border of an International Dark Sky Park, on a Wild and Scenic River?

    So, it’s time to celebrate. Let’s go on a Glacier National Park Star Party Float! We’ll take duckies — also called inflatable kayaks — down the North Fork of the Flathead River and spend the night in Polebridge to celebrate Glacier’s starry, dark skies. The next day, we’ll continue our float down the North Fork of the Flathead River, and should return to West Glacier around 5pm.
