Editor,

On behalf of Mount Revelstoke and Glacier national parks, I would like to offer heartfelt congratulations to the Friends of Mount Revelstoke and Glacier on their 25th anniversary.

Our Friends connect our community to the Parks and support quality visitor experiences for park visitors and local residents. They play a key role in funding and delivering many favourite programs and activities in both Mount Revelstoke and Glacier national parks including the annual Chickadee festival, Parks Day and Celebrate the Summit, Junior Naturalists, Art in the Park and the Mountain Film festival.

We very much appreciate their contributions and hard work over the past two decades in helping conserve and promote our parks natural and cultural resources for present and future generations.

Happy 25th to our Friends and we wish them many exciting years to come in their new store-front downtown location.

We look forward to continuing our great work with our Friends long into the future.

Karen Tierney,

Superintendent

Mt. Revelstoke & Glacier National Parks
