The Crown of the Continent Research Learning Center at Glacier National Park is hosting a brown-bag luncheon presentation by Glacier National Park Superintendent Jeff Mow. The free presentation, “Responding to Climate Change: An Organizational Perspective,” is Wednesday, August 5, from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. at the park’s community building in West Glacier.
National parks and protected areas throughout the world are being impacted by climate change through extreme weather events, warmer temperatures, rising sea levels, and ocean acidification. Mow said, “Underlying the challenge of how we respond to the new normal are an uncertainty associated with climate change. The organizational challenge for parks like Glacier is how to respond to climate change and build the organizational capacity to adapt to the wide range of conditions that we are experiencing.”
Mow has an extensive history working in northern latitudes and has been involved in climate change response for the National Park Service since 2006. He has been superintendent at Glacier National Park since August, 2013.
Jeff Mow, Superintendent of Glacier National Park, reiterated the park’s opposition to North Fork Road paving and expressed a lot of concern over the safety of oil shipments along the park’s boundary . . .
Glacier National Park superintendent Jeff Mow said last week he is not in favor of paving the North Fork Road to the Camas Road, a project strongly supported by Columbia Falls city officials.
The goal of paving the North Fork Road has been debated for years, but now Columbia Falls business and civic leaders are pitching the idea not only to boost tourist traffic through town but as an emergency route for West Glacier in case of a rail disaster.
City leaders told Sen. Jon Tester on March 20 that the Park supports paving the North Fork Road, but Mow disagreed.

Mow, who has been superintendent at Kenai Fjords since November 2004, is eager to return to Montana.
“My first visit to the park was in 1988 as a wildland firefighter on the Red Bench Fire near Polebridge,” he said. “Twenty-five years later, it is such an honor and privilege to return as superintendent and a newest member of Glacier’s outstanding management team. I can’t wait to join with the park staff and partners as we meet numerous challenges and opportunities facing the park in the next few years.”
