Learn Something New in Glacier Country

Whether you want to learn more about the flora and fauna of Western Montana, how to play it safe while you’re adventuring here, or how to protect and conserve Montana’s ecosystem, there’s plenty to learn, and many ways to go about it. Glacier Country is full of classes and educational programming and events.

Take the Ride of a Lifetime

Discover some of the West's best highways, byways, backroads and small towns by motorcycling from Glacier Country to Yellowstone Country. Plan your trip with a free Montana Motorcycle Guide.

To add an educational element to your time in Western Montana, check out places that offer learning opportunities—like history and nature events at Travelers Rest Connection—and getaways like writing retreats.

And because responsible recreation is top of mind here, taking classes on things like avalanche safety, bear awareness and Leave No Trace is always a good idea, and Glacier Country can accommodate.

Recreate Responsibly Plan Ahead, Play it Safe, and Leave No Trace.
