The average date of first freeze in East Glacier, Montana falls around September 13. Around this date every year, summer melting begins to cease and snow and ice tend to start growing again in the Glacier Park area.
Last year, Lysander Spooner University launched our climate change glacier-chasing research project. We aim to photograph and record glacier size around the same dates each year (focusing on Montana’s mountain ranges).
This year, we will embark on our GNP research trip on Friday evening, September 9.
Please join us! Expect to camp in primitive fashion. Bring sleeping bag and other camping gear.
