  1. just back from a visit to the preserve – had a very pleasant time there – I will be back and will tell my local friends about it.

  2. With friends from France and New York State, we thank you for this wonderful chance to visit Glacier Pools Preserve. One question we had was what month would you consider most favorable for observing the pools with their wildlife, especially of salamanders?

    Thank you for your attention and we applaud your dedication and kindness in creating such a preserve and providing an easement with the Linn Conservancy to provide for its future.
