Bear Spray Honor System

October 15th, 2012 by teresa

Our guests love to tell us about the wildlife they see whilst visiting Glacier National Park.  It is often a highlight of their stay and we LOVE to hear how you are enjoying our backyard!  However, please be sensible. Caution is advised whilst exploring the area as these are wild animals and can behave unpredictably.  Always pay attention to advice from Park Rangers and take good care out there!

Most animals will naturally avoid contact with humans – but some of our guests like to be prepared and choose to carry bear spray, especially when hiking in the more remote areas.

For our guests benefit, we follow an honor system with our bear spray.  We have many canisters of bear spray at front desk available to our guests free of charge.  This saves anywhere from $35.00 to $50.00 due to the fact that there is no need to purchase.

Don’t forget to pay it forward and let us have any remaining bear spray for the next guests to benefit.

The Peace Pole Project

May 4th, 2012 by teresa

Here at the Historic Tamarack Lodge and Cabins, we are proud to include ourselves in the Peace Pole Project.   A Peace Pole is a handcrafted monument displaying the message  ’May Peace Prevail On Earth’ in a variety of different languages.

From its beginnings in 1955 Japan, Masahisa Goi dedicated his life to spreading the message conveyed on the peace poles and today there are tens of thousands of poles in more than 180 countries throughout the world.  There are peace poles located at the Pyramids of Giza, at the magnetic North Pole and at Hiroshima, Japan.

The peace pole at the Historic Tamarack Lodge and Cabins was inaugurated in September 2010 in recognition of the 100 year anniversary of Glacier National Park which is also celebrated as the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park.
