Pack in, Pack Out policy begins (1969)

Postby llholmes1948 » Sun Apr 14, 2019 9:33 am

Two items from the Yesterdays Column in the Hungry Horse News:

"50 years ago
March 28, 1969
Glacier Park reported that would further emphasize its “pack it in, pack it out” policy for garbage to reduce conflicts with bears. The park changed its policies on garbage a couple of years prior after the infamous “Night of the Grizzlies” where two food-conditioned bears killed two women on the same night at two different camps. Glacier had an estimated 160 to 185 grizzlies at the time.
40 years ago
March 29, 1979
Geologist Bob Earhart of the U.S. Geological Survey had received permission to do the first geological survey of Glacier National Park in 65 years. Past survey attempts had been stymied because some didn’t want a formal survey done in the event valuable minerals or other resources were found, which could compromise the Park."
