This is the final webinar in Jeremy Covert’s “Stories from the Trail” series, a set of personal narratives gleaned from his more than two decades of adventuring in Glacier National Park. As a naturalist guide in Glacier, Jeremy’s knowledge of this environment and its history has been cultivated in depth. Today, he takes us on a trip back in time, following dusty trails into history with an important figure from the park’s early days. Discover the brand-new national park, created in 1910, through the life and times of one of its first rangers, Joe Cosley. Joe was on the scene well before Glacier-Waterton International Peace Park was established in 1931, even before the U.S. National Park Service was formalized in 1916. Through Joe’s lens, you’ll learn what the park was like then, and how it has changed (and not changed) since. Delve into this fascinatingly diverse ecosystem, discover the fate of its namesake glaciers, and meet some of the amazing people who have influenced the park over the years. Against this backdrop, Jeremy examines our relationship to sustainable wilderness travel, and it’s a favorite story of his guests on the trail.
