Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park
The short answer: a really, really good idea.

A more formal answer: a jointly
administered nature preserve consisting of
two national parks from separate nations
sharing a common boundary or border.

Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park
was the world's first, "born of a vision" in
1932. The vision was that of members of
Rotary International from southern Alberta
and northwestern Montana who wanted to
honor the peaceful Canada-United States
relationship.
What's a Peace Park?
Nature doesn't let dotted lines, meridians or mercators limit its
movement. The Peace Park concept celebrates that.

Celebrate it yourself by taking a Peace Park Paddle across the
International Boundary at the southern end of Cameron Lake. If you're a
skilled paddler (and the weather cooperates), paddle on Upper Waterton
Lake from the Waterton townsite to the Goat Haunt landing in Glacier
Park.

Visit the Peace Park Pavilion in the Waterton townsite for a fuller
understanding of Waterton-Glacier's role in creating, nurturing and
spreading a really, really good idea.
