Glacier National Park Looking For Volunteers To Help With Air Quality Studies

Imagine the "office" for doing air-quality studies in Glacier National Park. And if you want to work in that office, the park is looking for some volunteers to help with air-quality monitoring.

The volunteers will help and supplement park staff by collecting and downloading data from a site near park headquarters, calibrating equipment, and performing data entry and other administrative duties. Training will be provided.

Potential volunteers will be asked to commit to volunteering one to two days per week and four to eight hours each day worked. Due to the long-term nature of the data being collected, these positions will last a minimum of four to six months or longer, depending on a volunteer’s availability.

Air quality monitoring at Glacier is a long-term program that has been in place for decades. The information collected is important in furthering park manager’s knowledge of air quality and promoting resource conservation in Glacier National Park.

Anyone interested in volunteering with this important program is asked to contact Glacier National Park’s fisheries biologist Chris Downs at (406) 888-7917; or natural resources program manager Mark Biel at (406) 888-7919; .
