Glacier National Park Associates


The Glacier National Park Associates (GNPA) is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization that assists with trail work, historic log structure preservation and other projects that the park does not have adequate funding to complete. Volunteers complete a number of major projects yearly, often involving several days in the backcountry.

The Associates manage a Backcountry Ranger Intern Fund. GNPA sponsors a young backcountry ranger intern who worked for 12 weeks in the park's backcountry.

The Associates also manage a Backcountry Preservations Fund. Contributions from backcountry users are used to purchase supplies and materials for the backcountry, ranging from bear-proof boxes to computer programs related to hiking and camping in the backcountry.
