Hi, 

Thank you for your question! You and your wife can obtain a Senior Pass, and there is more information about how to obtain one at this link: https://store.usgs.gov/senior-pass There are also discounts available to disabled veterans and currently serving U.S. military families, and you can find out more about that here:  https://www.nps.gov/planyourvisit/passes.htm#CP_JUMP_5088576 
Otherwise, there aren’t many discounts. However, do keep in mind most National Parks in the U.S. are free! Only 118 out of 417 National Parks have an entrance fee. 

Best,
Sarah

Hi, 
Thank you for your question!
 
Glacier National Park is an ideal place to view wildlife year round. However, if you’re looking to see some of the rarer species, or just especially active wildlife living in Glacier’s wetlands and forests, May or June would be your best bet. 
 
Hope you have a wonderful visit,
