Description: The world's first International Peace Park was formed in 1932 through the combination of the Waterton Lakes National Park (Alberta, Canada) and the Glacier National Park (Montana, United States). Sitting on the border of the two countries the site offers outstanding scenery affluent with plant and mammal species, as well as prairie, forest, and alpine and glacial features. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
  The Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park is the name of the union of the Waterton Lakes National Park in Canada and the Glacier National Park in the United States. Both parks are declared Biosphere Reserves by UNESCO and their union as a World Heritage Site. The union of the parks was achieved through the efforts of Rotary International members from Alberta and Montana in 1932. It was the world's first International Peace Park, symbolising peace and friendship between the two countries. Efforts are also under way for a USA-Mexico International Park. --Wikipedia.
