LeConte’ Glacier Survey


LeConte’ Glacier Survey

    The LeConte’ Glacier Survey was started by Instructor Paul Bowen in 1983.  Since that 

     time there has been a yearly survey to locate the terminus.  The survey has been

     conducted by high school students, and then posted to inform the public.
