The Glacier National Park Conservancy is opening a sales outlet at its office at 402 Ninth St. W. in Columbia Falls.
The store opens Friday.
Store hours will be Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The store will feature a diverse selection of items that allow a greater understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of Glacier Park, ranging from books to apparel and water bottles to blankets.
Special shopping opportunities and events are planned in November and December.
“We are looking forward to this new step and being able to better engage the local communities in our mission to support Glacier. By shopping at our store, your purchase will support the Park,” said Wendy Hill, director of retail and product development for the Conservancy.
The Glacier National Park Conservancy is the result of the Jan. 1, 2013 merger of two of Glacier National Park’s longtime nonprofit partners, The Glacier Natural History Association and the Glacier National Park Fund.
Working closely with Glacier National Park leadership, the two boards helped to form the Conservancy to provide a higher level of philanthropic and outreach support for programs in Glacier National Park.
The Glacier National Park Conservancy is the official nonprofit fundraising partner of Glacier National Park. Its mission is to assure the Glacier National Park experience by providing support for preservation, education, and research through philanthropy and outreach.
