Zinke: Rebuilding Glacier NP's Sperry chalet a top priority; USNPS to stabilize remains before winter

Two weeks after the Sperry Chalet was destroyed in a wildfire, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke announced that rebuilding the historic dormitory in Glacier National Park is one of his “top priorities.”

Engineers from a Missoula-based firm have visited the chalet, which was heavily damaged by the Sprague Fire on Aug. 31, and in coming days they will recommend to the National Park Service what needs to be done to stabilize the remains before winter. The Glacier National Park Conservancy is financing the stabilization work and has established a fund to support future efforts.
