An interesting article on rare, cold-water insect species found in Glacier National Park and, if you read carefully, the North Fork . . .
Slowly but surely, Joe Giersch has been scouring streams below glaciers and snowfields in Glacier National Park for rare and mysterious aquatic insects that in some cases haven’t been detected anywhere else on earth.
The effort has been paying off for Giersch, an aquatic entomologist with the U.S. Geological Survey who is based out of West Glacier.
“There’s a whole host of these alpine stream insects that are not only isolated below these high alpine streams, but many of these species are only found in this part of the world,” Giersch said.
