Adopt a Glacier

Overall, glaciers are retreating at an alarming rate around the world in response to a warming Earth. To help promote awareness of glacier recession and to support the Roger G. Barry Resource Office for Cryospheric Studies (ROCS), ROCS has created an Adopt-a-Glacier fundraising project. Adoption of a glacier is symbolic but the money raised will allow ROCS to purchase document boxes for preserving manuscript materials in acid free folders, to purchase photo safe boxes for preserving our historic photograph collections, and to assist in the ongoing preservation, organization, and digitization of historic materials. Three glaciers are available for adoption: Arapaho, Franz Josef, and Muir. Donors receive a certificate of adoption along with a photo and facts about the glacier they have adopted. For more information or to adopt a glacier, see the Adopt-a-Glacier Web page.
