Glacier Park's shrinking glaciers a visible barometer of climate change

As part of our ongoing series in Montana Public Media's "Climate Week", tonight we focus on how climate change is impacting Glacier National Park.
    Melting glaciers are one of the most tangible effects of climate change. Glacier National Park has been jokingly called "Glacier-less National Park" and "Dirty Sno-cone National Park" since the park's namesakes will melt away in just a few decades.
    Reporter Allison Mills recently hiked up to Grinnell Glacier with researcher Dan Fagre and his crew to see what's happening to the retreating ice.


Retired in 2014 but still a presence at MTPR, Sally Mauk is a University of Kansas graduate and former wilderness ranger who has reported on everything from the Legislature to forest fires.
