About the project: Harbinger authored this report about the relationship between Glacier National Park and surrounding wildlands and economic success in nearby communities. Gateway to Glacier: The Emerging Economy of Montana’s Flathead County compiled information and data from three commissioned studies and numerous other sources to tell what was at the time a new story about the links between the natural appeal of these areas and the emerging, thriving, and diverse economy of Montana’s Flathead Valley.
The award-winning Gateway to Glacier report grounded discussions among business and community leaders in Flathead County, Montana. These discussions helped galvanize community and media support instrumental to the allocation of full funding for reconstruction of Glacier National Park’s Going-to-the-Sun highway.
