This project enabled the interpretive staff and volunteer astronomers of Glacier National Park to expand night sky programs to additional audiences. The Impact Grant helped the park to purchase a cargo trailer to transport five telescopes and accessories to various park locations and into the local communities. NPF funds also helped purchase a new solar telescope, which allowed the park to offer daytime solar viewing in additional park areas. Attendance at day and night programs has greatly increased and equipment purchased will have a big impact on night sky interpretation at Glacier for many years to come!
