Web site aims to protect Glacier National Park –

A new Web site created by the National Parks Conservation Association aims to expose some of the threats facing Glacier National Park. keeps an eye on the Park’s environmental news and showcases legislation NPCA and other partners support, most notably the North Fork Watershed Protection Act.

The Act, sponsored by Montana Sens. Max Baucus and Jon Tester, would ban any future mining and energy development in the North Fork watershed.

Will Hammerquist, of the National Parks Conservation Association, noted the bill had broad support from energy companies, environmental groups and would cost taxpayers nothing.
