The Friends of Mount Revelstoke and Glacier was founded by a group of concerned citizens in 1986 and officially gained
its non-profit status on February 5, 1987. Twenty five years later it boasts a membership of 200 people from around the
world interested in the preservation, protection, education and enjoyment of our national parks.
The organization funds a variety of projects ranging from research grants and bursaries to local publications
(newsletters, books, brochures, field guides and guide books), educational programs and outdoor courses.
The funding for these projects comes primarily from the revenue generated through the Glacier Circle Bookstore
located in the Rogers Pass Discovery Center in Glacier National Park. Decisions and the administering of funds is the
responsibility of seven volunteer directors. Directors terms are two years and a director can only sit on the board for
a maximum of six years. Day to day operations of the society, and the management of the retail outlets is
the responsibility of the Executive Director.
