Preserving The Park

Glacier Park Boat Company is committed to environmental stewardship and identifying the best practices for reducing our impact on the environment of Glacier National Park and beyond. We work closely with the National Park Service, as well as other local, state and federal agencies to develop and maintain environmentally sound operating procedures. We are proud to say we are a carbon-neutral company and continue to develop and research our practices to ensure that Glacier National Park remains the Crown Jewel of the Continent.

National Park Trash Can

We encourage all visitors to Glacier National Park to help minimize impact on the Park’s fragile ecosystem by learning more about Leave No Trace. Leave No Trace is a framework of minimum impact practices for anyone visiting Glacier National Park. You can help to reduce your impact by learning the Seven Principles of Leave No Trace Ethics before your visit. This information is available on the Glacier National Park website or by visiting the Center for Outdoor Ethics’ Leave No Trace website.

There are a number of ways to minimize your environmental footprint, here is a short list of some of Glacier Park Boat Company’s practices to ensure we do our part in Glacier National Park and the world surrounding:
• Practice recycling and waste-reduction company wide.
• Utilize water and energy conservation methods
• Incorporate a Green Purchasing program to utilize earth-friendly products.
• Actively engage in litter abatement around each of our 5 operations in the Park
• Work to reduce the threat of invasive species in the lakes and surrounding areas of the Park. Stop Aquatic Hitchhikers!
• Purchase Verifiable Emissions Reduction certificates (VER’s) for fuel and other non-renewable energy use.
• Purchase Renewable Energy Certificates (REC’s) to compensate our energy use.
• Develop a bonus program for our employees to encourage the use and development of environmental improvement practices.
