Question: How old are the glaciers in the park? Answer: Glacier Bay has experienced at least 4 glacial periods. The last, the Little Ice age, began about 4,000 years ago. The glaciers that still exist in the park today are remnants of that glacial period.
Question: How old is the ice at the face of theglaciers? Answer: Glaciers flow forward about 3 - 6 feet each day. Depending on the length of the glacier and the steepness of the valley it flows through, the ice at the front of the glacier is anywhere between 200 and 75 years old. So snow that fell in the high mountains 200 years ago, when the U. S. Declaration of Independence was signed, calves (breaks off) off as ice today.
