Waterton - Glacier International Peace Park Association
The Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park Association membership is open to Rotarian's from Rotary Districts 5080, 5360, 5370, and 5390 who have an interest in; "...supporting and maintaining the development and promotion of Waterton Lakes National Park and Glacier National Park as a symbol of friendship, cooperation and our commitment to building peace initiatives whenever possible."
In order to fulfill the tenets of our Mission Statement the Association will undertake and advocate for the following:
(a) We will support the work and mandate of both parks to provide educational opportunities for park visitors and the general public to preserve the flora and fauna and the lands which make up the parks.
(b) We will advocate with Rotarian's and other groups who have similar goals for the promotion of peace, freedom and equal opportunities for all.
(c) We will be vigilant in monitoring all proposed developments both inside and outside of the boundaries of both national parks and support changes which ensure the long-term ecological integrity of Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park for future generations.
(d) We will work with organizations that have similar interests in conservation and support the expansion of Waterton Lakes National Park to encompass the Flathead River Valley in British Columbia.
Rotary Pledge of Peace
"In the name of God, we will not take up arms against each other. We will work for peace, maintain liberty, strive for freedom and demand equal opportunities for all mankind. May the long existing peace between our two nations stimulate other peoples to follow this example. We thank thee O' God."
