New Content in the Natural History Exhibit!

Question: How do you balance a glacier?
Answer: Very carefully! 

Come learn more about the impacts of climate change on glaciers in Olympic National Park with a new interactive animation on Glacial Mass Balance.

How do glaciers respond to changes in the length of winter snowfall?
What causes glaciers to advance and recede?

Learn the answers to these questions (and more!) with this addition to our Climate Change display in the Natural History Exhibit.

This display was funded in part by the Public Participation Grant from the Washington Department of Ecology. Thank you to staff at Olympic National Park for providing the display content.
